Annual Nickel Carnival returning to Courtenay’s Lewis Centre

Wouldn’t it be great if games cost only a nickel? Well for one day they do!

The annual Nickel Carnival returns to the Lewis Centre on Friday, July 19 for 5 – 11 years with adult. Kids can try their hand at carnival games with prizes to be won and oodles of fun to be had, visit our face-painters to have their face transformed, or take a cakewalk on the wild side.

The carnival will run from 1:30- 3:30 p.m. at the Lewis Centre. Admission is $3, with $2 returned in carnival tickets. There’s no need to bring nickels with you, as your admission will pay for a punch card to play games.

This year’s theme is Mardi Gras. Enjoy colourful and exciting fair festivities such as Prize Drop, Mini Putt, Duck Pond & much more. Visit the concession booth, where there will be hot dogs, drinks and other tasty treats.

Parents and caregivers of kids with special needs are welcome to come early, at 12:30 pm, so that the kids have more time at each carnival game.
