MONROE, CT — Children cooled off on a splash pad and went down a giant inflatable waterslide during the fourth annual Carnival Day, run by Monroe Summer Day Camp on the grounds of Monroe Congregational Church Thursday afternoon.
The carnival is also being held Friday for the 75 children enrolled at the camp this week. Ages of the children range from 3 to 13.
On Thursday the children took turns wielding a Wiffle bat to bash a piñata filled with candy, jumped around in a bounce house and navigated an inflatable obstacle course.
Day campers got tattoos and ate snow cones and cotton candy, while listening to tunes played by a deejay from Heavenly Sounds Inc.
Karen Mucherino, who founded the camp in 2019, also credited CT Bounce House with making the carnival happen.
