The Peanut Carnival is back! 

The April school break is next week and if you are looking for activities to fill the week, a popular event is returning to Presque Isle on Thursday April 21. Presque Isle Recreation and Parks will be bringing back the Peanut Carnival for 2022. 

A multi-generation carnival

A tradition for decades in the Presque Isle, the Peanut Carnival is back after 2 years of disruptions and accommodations due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year's Peanut Carnival will run from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on April 22 at the Sargent Family Community Center on Chapman Rd. Admission to the Peanut Carnival is just $2 per person.

No need to worry about peanuts

Peanuts are not actually involved or used at the Peanut Carnival. There will be several carnival style games for you to play and earn prizes! There will be face painting, bounce houses, and clowns at the carnival, to add to the event. At the end of the Peanut Carnival there will be a bike raffle in which one girl and one boy will each leave with brand new bike!

Who will be there? 

All are welcome to come attend the 2022 Peanut Carnival in Presque Isle! For more information on the Peanut Carnival and all other events, follow the Presque Isle Recreation and Parks Facebook page.
