The popular Vernon attraction will host a family fun night Carnival Wednesday, Aug. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Last year’s participants had so much fun, we brought it back,” said event organizer Daniella Vermeulen. “The rock wall and bungee races were a real hit, so we brought them back for those who would like a rematch.”

Admission is by donation. Attendees are encouraged to carpool as this event brings a lot of people to the centre and parking is limited.
