WARSAW — Many people got to enjoy games, play in bounce houses and mingle with clowns in Warsaw on Friday, July 29.
The Warsaw Parks and Recreation Department put on its Family Carnival on Friday night at Central Park. There was also face painting, a dunk tank and a juggler among other things.
Warsaw Parks and Recreation Department Superintendent Larry Plummer said the event was packed this year.
“It’s great to see,” he said. “You know after COVID-19, we didn’t have the event. We were down a little bit last year, and this year I think … everybody’s out. … I think we had record (ticket and wristband) sales this year.”
“A lot of families enjoying it, multiple kids are coming through, and everybody’s happy and having a good time,” he added.
Volunteers from VIA Credit Union and Zimmer Biomet helped at the event this year along with parks and recreation department staff.
“It was a beautiful night for the activities,” Plummer said. “I’m just glad everybody came out and had fun, and we’ll do it again next year.”
