ALBION – Emily, age 4, heads down a slide from a bounce house at Bullard Park today.

Community Action of Orleans & Genesee organized the carnival with help from other local agencies and the park supervisors in the village park program.

There were many stations with games, activities, food and prizes. The carnival started at 10 a.m. and ended at 2 p.m.

“Mr. Scribbles” – Michael Sparling of Perry – was a popular spot, letting kids scribble on a paper and then he added cartoons of animals with a friendly message.

Mr. Scribbles made this artwork for Brianne.
