Carnival for Cure helps MS society

The event this Saturday takes place at Milner Village Garden Centre.

There will be pig races, pony rides and a petting zoo.

And those are just the animal attractions.

The Carnival for the Cure at Milner Village Garden Centre on Saturday, July 20, promises a whole lot of old-fashioned fun in support of an important cause.

The event, which will feature carnival rides — including the always-popular Ferris wheel — and games, is a fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.

As the mercury climbs, visitors can cool off with a splash in the dunk tank (or help somebody else take a refreshing dip).

Visitors are invited to grab some kettle corn and cotton candy or perhaps sample the results of the bake-off.

There will be live music and a bouncy castle, too.

Carnival for the Cure runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the garden centre, located at 6690 216 St.

Due to ongoing construction along 216 Street, south of Milner, the best way to get to the fair is by turning east onto 216 Street from Glover Rd. at the signalized intersection next to the Husky gas station, or from the east via 64 Avenue and 216 Street.
