Bloomsburg University’s SOLVE Office hosts annual Kids Fun Carnival

BLOOMSBURG - Kids Fun 2005, hosted by Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s SOLVE Office, will be held Saturday, April 2, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Nelson Field House.

During Kids Fun, members of BU’s student organizations will provide games and crafts for children, following the theme, “Under the Sea.” About 25 BU student organizations and several hundred local children are expected to participate.

According to Jean Downing, director of BU’s SOLVE Office, the free annual event provides a carnival-like atmosphere inside Nelson Field House. “It’s a chance for children and their families to beat cabin fever,” she said. “Kids Fun has an energy all of its own with games, face painting, prizes, a moon bounce and visits from some surprise characters, courtesy of The Costume Shop.’
