Spring Carnival to Raise Funding for Scholarships, Programming
Wyoming, Michigan, April 5, 2017 – West Michigan residents are invited to enjoy the Spring Carnival April 28-May7 and raise support for the Greater Wyoming Community Resource Alliance and the Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department.
This year, the Spring Carnival has moved to Lamar Park, 2561 Porter St. SW and will feature entertainment for all ages including games, prizes and carnival fare favorites. A spectrum of rides will be available for carnival-goers, from crowd pleasers, such as a carousel and Ferris wheel, to the adrenaline-inducing Mega Drop and Wipe Out. Unlimited ride wristbands will be available daily for $20.00.
The carnival will be open Monday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Proceeds from the carnival support the Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department and the Greater Wyoming Community Resource Alliance, or GWCRA. Monies raised will support youth scholarships and youth and family programming through the Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department. The GWCRA will distribute funds to the community through its annual grant making process.
“We hope that the community will join in supporting these two great causes,” said Rebecca Rynbrandt, director of Community Services for the City of Wyoming. “The Parks and Recreation Department and the GWCRA provide services and funding that benefit children, families and non-profit organizations throughout Wyoming.”
The Spring Carnival is made possible through the work of the City of Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department and TJ Schmidt. For more information, contact the Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department at 616.530.3164.
