Community Crossroads recently held its 16th Annual Kid’s Carnival at the Woodbury School in Salem. “Despite the blizzard which caused us to postpone the event by one week, the event went off without a hitch”, stated Carnival Coordinator Tammy Dudal. “In all of the 16 years of this community event, we have never had to postpone the Carnival”, Dudal said. “We were very fortunate to have had all the volunteers and entertainers available a week later. Words cannot describe our gratitude to those who perform and volunteer year after year”. We are especially grateful to the Woodbury School for their continued support over the years.
The event brought in many families from the local communities. Throughout the day there were demonstrations by the Salem Fire Department. Children enjoyed dressing up in their gear. “Jurasic Joe” of Mad Science wowed the crowd with his magical science performance. Ocasio’s True Martial Arts kept theaudience glued to their seats with their front kicks. While the Lowell Spinners Mascot walked & joked around with kids and adults and posed for many photos. The Studio of Performing Arts delighted the crowd with several dances by their competitive dance teams. They invited the entire crowd to join the stage for several dances. Life is Good popped fresh popcorn and passed out many types of bumper stickers. Sandlot Sports & Entertainment sponsored the coloring contest.
Everything and everyone involved made this day a safe, fun and exciting event for kids of all ages and abilities. The event also included many handmade crafts, raffle prizes & carnival games. It could not have been a success without our main sponsors Salem Co-operative Bank, Playmates Learning Center, Sandlot Sports & Entertainment and Pentucket Bank.
