Boys & Girls Clubs of Cascade County Holds Annual Christmas Carnival

Sending off the year and ringing in the holidays can take on many forms, and for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cascade County this time of year is marked by their annual Christmas Carnival! The yearly carnival, led by Unit Director Nichole Hutchinson, is held at the Great Falls Clubhouse and invited everyone in the community to participate! Over 100 Club members, their families, and community members showed up for the event.

Over 25 booths were present, and included Community partners’ informational booths for parents, which also hosted mini games for kids, in addition to carnival games and events run by club staff and community volunteers. In addition to the plethora of booths, other holiday events were also involved; including a bounce house, holiday arts & crafts, make your own root beer float, and holiday cookie decorating! All youth in attendance were also fed a spaghetti dinner, a nice warm meal for the winter season.

Everyone knows a Christmas party isn’t complete without Santa! So of course he made an appearance during his busy schedule, and took pictures with the youth and their families, as well as handing out holiday gift bags! Unit Director Nichole Hutchinson says that the event is always a great way to cap off the year and set a positive tone going into the New Year. Way to go Boys & Girls Club of Cascade County and their holiday traditions!
