Immanuel Lutheran Carnival Offers Fun for Kids

Event Caps Off Lutheran Schools Week

For a day of kid-friendly activities, come to the annual Immanuel Lutheran Carnival on March 10.

The carnival caps off Lutheran Schools Week. “It’s a celebration of our Lutheran schools throughout the country,” explained Karen Bahn, school principal. “Each day we have a special activity that we do.” Those activities include getting involved in the community, like singing at a nursing home.

Inexpensive tickets, which can be purchased in advance at the school office, are used toward carnival games and food. Tickets are 5/$1 in advance or 4/$1 at the door. Otherwise, the event is free to attend.

The carnival is put on by the Parent Teacher League as a fundraiser. “We’re raising money for a new bell system,” said Bahn. “It must be original–it’s the old type of bell system.” Due to strong attendance in past years, she anticipates that the fundraiser will be able to raise the funds necessary to upgrade.

During the event, attendees can bid on silent auction baskets that go by themes and are announced in the afternoon. “We have some really nice things that have been donated for that, and we have been given things by the community and other business around the state,” said Bahn.

Activities include a bouncy house, face painting, cakewalk, and other carnival games for kids.
“It’s fun for everybody,” she said. The event is Saturday, March 10 from 10-2 p.m. at the school at 604 S. Chestnut Avenue.
