Kids of all ages will enjoy a day packed with fun activities and exciting rides: pony rides, an exotic petting zoo, train rides, rock wall climbing, a giant obstacle course, an arcade of exciting games with lots of prizes, a dunk tank, face painting, a giant raffle with big prizes, kids’ dancing and musical entertainment at the Carnival’s Grand Stage, and a cornucopia of tasty treats including midway hotdogs, hot tamales, Big Giant Pita delights, snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn, Jamba Juice and cool beverages.
Alongside the Carnival we’re hosting a Summer Marketplace where Carnival goers will find the perfect gift on sale by local vendors.
Proceeds of the Carnival and Marketplace go to Culver Y’s annual fundraising campaign to help children grow strong and become socially responsible. By ensuring families access to the fundamentals needed to learn, grow and thrive, the Y seeks to make good on its commitment to strengthen the foundations of the community.
A number of sponsors are helping with the event, among them, Pacific Alarm Systems, FastSigns, Miller Honda, Abbot’s Pizza, AAA Flag & Banner, John Riordon Plumbing, Merrill Lynch, Culver-Palms Animal Hospital, Hull Bros. Roofing, and the Ya Yas of Culver City.
Entertainment and ride tickets can be purchased in advance at Culver Y: 6 tickets for $5; 14 tickets for $10; 35 tickets for $20. All tickets are $1 each on the day of the Carnival.
Raffle tickets can also be purchased for $1 each, in advance or on the day of the Carnival.
