Mark your calendars for Pogo Park's summer ‘Carnival’

By Kathy Chouteau

Pogo Park is hosting its 2nd Annual Carnival Friday, July 19 from 3-7 p.m. at Elm Playlot in Richmond.

A recipe for fun is in store for people of all ages at the carnival, which will double as a fundraiser supporting the nonprofit’s work. Pogo Park transforms city parks in Richmond’s Iron Triangle neighborhood into safe, green, beautiful public spaces for children.

Games, attractions, snacks and photos will be part of the carnival’s mix, with Pogo Park Executive Director Toody Maher sharing there will be a jumper, mechanical bull, choo-choo train, 360 photo booth, splash tower, popcorn, snow cones and great music.

The purchase of $12 tickets is necessary to enjoy the various carnival activities. Tickets can be pre-purchased at Pogo Park/Elm Playlot now through July 19 between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will also be available at the event gate the day of the carnival.

Pogo Park asks that parents be present to supervise children age 18 and younger.

Elm Playlot is located at 8th Street & Elm Avenue in Richmond. Learn more about Pogo Park here. Questions? Contact 510-215-5500 or email [email protected].
