Christmas carnival / toy drive for Atlanta's homeless children
Saturday, December 22, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
This time is meant to be a magical time for all kids. With your help, we will make this so for as many homeless kids as we can.
This Christmas carnival will be a fun filled day for the kids and their families. We will have clowns, magicians, jugglers, face painters, balloon twisters and many more.
We will also fun children and family activities and games.
It can't be a carnival without all the fun foods like cotton candy, nachos, hot dogs etc.
Of course, it will include a picture with Santa. Come and bring your child and take a picture with Santa. Ashley Johnson w/ Paradize Photography will be doing the photo shoot. You can get your or your child's picture with Santa for only $7. Part of the proceeds will benefit Lift Up Atlanta
If that's not enough, we will have a silent auction where dozens of businesses and organizations have donated merchandise to be auctioned off. This will be better than Groupon and you get to help a worthy cause.
The admission is only $6.00
