Carnival Fun – Step Right Up!

Thanks to Credit Union of Ohio for sponsoring this post and hosting a FREE community event.

Like the idea of a frugal, fun, family outing where you can learn more about being financially savvy? Then, come to Credit Union of Ohio’s 5th Annual Carnival! The carnival is open to everyone – both members and non-members!  

The Carnival is being held on Friday, June 8, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Hillard Branch of Credit Union of Ohio. There will be activities for all ages to enjoy! 

I don’t know about you, but some of my favorite memories as a child took place at summer festivals, fairs, and carnivals. I love the mixture of the food wafting through the air, the musical sounds and laughter, the cool breeze on my skin, and the fun activities played with friends and family. That is my favorite summertime combination. In fact, I totally identify with Will Smith’s “Summertime” lyrics…“And as I think back makes me wonder how the smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia…” I always feel like a kid again at these types of events.

Recently we took our children to a festival at their school and I think they had more fun (no joke) than when we were at Disney. And think about the price difference! This is essentially free, with guaranteed fun!

If your children (or you) like face painting, inflatables, balloon animals, live music and carnival games – then mark your calendars now!  This is the perfect equation for summertime, family fun and memories to be made with your little ones!

Besides all the awesome entertainment and activities being offered, there will be three food trucks at the festival – Empanadas and MoreMojo Tago and Mya’s Fried Chicken.  Everyone will receive a ticket for one food item from their choice of food truck. Score! Plus, Credit Union of Ohio will have plenty of water, ice cream, and cotton candy too – all complimentary!  

Another reason to attend this awesome event is to find out more about joining Credit Union of Ohio. If you are anything like me, you may want to find out more about opening up an account for each of your children. I am clueless about how this process works! So I am super excited to take advantage of the opportunity to talk to one of the credit union advisors during the carnival.  I know it is so important to raise your children to be financially smart, and I want to plant the seeds of financial knowledge when they are young. I know Credit Union of Ohio will hold my hand through the process!

And, if you decide to open an account for your children at the Carnival, Credit Union of Ohio will match the opening amount up to $25. (Full details will be provided at the Carnival.)  I don’t know about you, but that just makes cents! 😉

NOTE: Carnival attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Credit Union of Ohio’s event page. Parking for the carnival is available in the main lot of the Hilliard branch of Credit Union of Ohio, and there will be additional parking in the BMW lot.  There will be signage to help direct you! I hope to see you and your family there!
