Abundant Life Baptist Church is offering a free carnival to help families find entertainment that’s a reprieve from belt tightening.
The community is invited to Abundant Life’s Free Kids Carnival noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 21.
The event, now in its 11th year, has become a tradition for many families in the Lee’s Summit area. No tickets are required and no donations are solicited or accepted.
“It’s really free, really fun and families have been enjoying it for 10 years,” said Phil Long, an Abundant Life pastor who oversees the event. “We are blessed to be a part of such a great community and it’s our way of simply saying thank you.”
The event, which takes place at Abundant Life at 414 S.W. Persels features free activities for children of all ages and free food and drinks for all.
Activities in previous years included a trackless train, moon walk, slides, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, a dunk tank and competition inflatables. These events, plus many others, return this year and help swell the carnival to fill the multi-acre parking lot.
