Children’s Carnival planned
ISHPEMING — The Annual Chamber Children’s Carnival is coming up on Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the River Rock Lanes & Banquet Center parking lot, with a rain date of June 17.
This event is completely free. Thanks to J-Goods Plumbing and Heating, the Title Sponsor, the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Chamber of Commerce is able to provide this event for the families of the community.
There will be fun carnival games to win small prizes or candy, a dunk tank, an inflatable obstacle course, and more. Children 12 and under will get a free hot dog and drink while at the carnival. Food will also be available for purchase for adults.
Registration is required for this event, but is free. Just show up and look for the “check-in” tables and volunteers.
Upon checking in, each family will fill out a COVID wellness check questionnaire and receive slips for games, entering drawings, and food. In accordance with the CDC it is strongly recommended that participants wear masks while in large groups and not able to physically distance from each other. Please do not attend if anyone in your family is sick.
The bicycle give-away will be drawn at 7 p.m. and families do not need to be present to win.
The GINCC thanks it other sponsors: J Goods Plumbing & Heating, Eagle Mine, Radio Results Network, TruNorth Credit Union, mediaBrew Communications, TV6/Fox UP, UPPCO, The Mining Journal, ABC 10, Cliffs, Northern Michigan University, and Bell Auxiliary for contributing to this event and helping make it fun for the kids.
The chamber would also like to thank the Ishpeming Fire Department for donating one bicycle and one helmet to add to the grand prize.
