We had a blast at the Ellsworth Winter Carnival! Union Square provided activities (including winter coloring pages, ping pong, corn hole, mini-bowling, and more) and fun at the Moore Center as a way for carnival-goers to warm up! With the help of the Down East Family YMCA, we were also able to provide a warm snack bar with soft pretzels, candy, and drinks for everyone! Parents were able to sit and take a break without a coat, and kids were able to have fun in a supervised, safe place with other kids before getting back to the skating rink at Knowlton Park!.

We even had a snow sculpture contest!

It was a lot of fun, and we look forward to working with the City of Ellsworth Recreation Commission and the Down East Family YMCA again next year!
