ALBION – The annual kids’ carnival at Bullard Park will be back on July 13 and will include new attractions and activities.

The event will feature bounce houses, carnival games, kids activities, music and a “Say No to Bullying” magic show throughout the day, presented by Mike Seege from Buffalo.

The Albion Renovation Masonic Lodge will have lunch available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Best of Tymes will sell snow cones, popcorn and soda or water for $1 each. Lyncoln Bear and Buddies will be on site, as well as Frosty and Friends Tumbling and Things. The splash pad will also be open.

Cost to enter is a $5 wrist band, which allows children to play all day.

An Albion business has stepped up to sponsor a new program for the carnival. Christina Nenni, who owns Best of Tymes Party Rentals located in the Arnold Gregory Complex, said the business was approached by John Grillo, recreation director at Bullard Park. He asked if Best of Tymes could come up with something affordable for kids and families to do. They will have costumed characters and fun activities for kids.

Carnival Day at Bullard Park will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 13. Sponsoring the event with Best of Tymes Party Rentals is New York State Corrections Officers Police Benevolent Association and Frosty and Friends.

“We are hoping this will become an annual event, and get bigger and better every year,” Nenni said.
