The Helena Education Foundation’s 20th Carnival Classic will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday in Memorial Park and will kick off this school year with entertainment that supports participating school clubs, teams and parent groups.

Families can enjoy dozens of activity booths including a dunk tank, face and hair painting, crafts, bobbing for doughnuts, a temporary tattoo parlor, tie-dying, goldfish toss and other activities.

The YMCA will start the carnival with a Zumba lesson, a bounce house will be on hand, and local youth dance and music groups will perform throughout the day.

Carnival-goers can enjoy lunch, snacks or refreshments in the food court and learn about community groups that serve young people and their families from the nonprofit booths.

Lisa Cordingley, the foundation’s executive director, said last year’s Carnival Classic received rave reviews after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.
