The 16th Annual Abilities Carnival and Resource Fair, which celebrates Culver City’s Disability Awareness Month, takes place from 12:30 to 3:30 PM on Sunday, October 20, at the Culver City Senior Center (4095 Overland Avenue). The event is completely free of charge for youth, teens and adults of all ages! Simply RSVP by calling (310) 253-6707 so the City can prepare the proper quantities of food, prizes and craft supplies.
“The Abilities Carnival and Resource Fair is designed to bring the community together to celebrate equity and inclusion during Disability Awareness Month,” said Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells. “I would like to thank the Exchange Club of Culver City, the Culver City Senior Citizens Association, Inc., the City’s Disability Advisory Committee and the Culver City Neighborhood Girl Scouts. Without their generous support and partnership with our Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department, this event couldn’t be possible.”
The carnival will feature game booths, live entertainment by Jazz Hands for Autism, Reggae for Children, Hula dancers, a photo booth, community resource tables, a quiet activity room, an arts and crafts area and balloon animals. All activities are designed to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities. Free hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, cotton candy and popcorn will be served.
The City’s Social Services Division provides information and referrals to government programs, senior citizens services and other community resources.
