Carnival to feature games, silent auction

The New Creation Lutheran Church of Perham will host its second annual Community Carnival on Friday, April 19 from 3:30-7 p.m. at the Perham Area Community Center.

The carnival is a fundraiser that will feature fun activities for kids as well as cash prizes and silent auction items that the whole family can enjoy.

“We have some great silent auction items,” said Amy Walz, an event organizer.

In addition to homemade quilts, afghans and woodwork, the auction will include two tickets to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, two 3-day passes to WE Fest, a one night stay at Seven Clans Casino with six water park passes, passes to the water park at Wisconsin Dells, passes to the Medora Musical, tickets to the Woodtick Theater, Twins tickets, an airplane ride, and guided fishing trips on area lakes.

Kids’ activities will feature inflatable bounce-houses, games, face painting and more.

Traditional carnival fare like hot dogs and cotton candy will be available, as well as pulled pork barbecues.

Game and food tickets may be purchased at the door.

The event is sponsored by New Creation Lutheran Church, with additional funding provided by the East Otter Tail Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
