ALBION – Bullard Park was busy today for the annual carnival put on by the Village of Albion Recreation Program. For the second year the Albion Rec Program welcomed children from throughout the area.

There were five bounce houses brought by Best of Tymes Party Rentals.

John Grillo, the recreation director, estimated more than 500 children and their families attended the four-hour event.

Michelle Wiseman of Best of Tymes serves cotton candy. Best of Thymes also had popcorn, nachos and snow cones. They charged $5 per child for the food and for unlimited use of the bounce houses.

The Albion Masonic Lodge and the Royal Body Shop Outreach Ministries also helped the Recreation Department put on the event today at the park.

The splash pad at Bullard remains a big hit about a year after it opened.
