The Carnival is Coming!

The Bates Mission team has been hard at work putting together a new fundraiser, thanks to the generous support of Honda Leander and Leander Leaders. Our 1st Annual Carnival and Car Show will be held Saturday, May 4, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, and we’re excited to offer lots of fun activities for our local friends and family to enjoy!

SRE Productions is coordinating a car show with some cool vintage and sporty specimens that are sure to impress!  

We know kids big and small love animals, and Georgetown Homestead is bringing their 50-animal petting zoo. Holding a prairie dog in my lap? Sign me up!

TrainQuest will have their kiddie train for all the little ones to take a trip around the Honda Leander dealership, as well as inflatable midway-style games with little prizes for anyone who steps up to play. They’re also hosting one of the activities we’re most excited for this year which is a build-your-own teddy bear station that includes bear-sized Bates Mission t-shirts!

For anyone ages 12 and up, Tomahawk Target will be stopping by with their mobile axe-throwing trailer! Keep your eye on the bulls-eye and see how many points you can score!

No outside event would be complete without a little music, and GGC Productions is bringing it! Their DJ will keep the tunes going all day, and they’ll have some yard games like a giant Jenga and Cornhole to keep everyone entertained between songs.

Face painting? Check. Balloon artist? Check. Oh, and did we mention food??? Several food trucks will be on site with things like hot dogs, kettle corn, lemonade, and of course funnel cakes for purchase!

Admission is free, and you can purchase tickets for individual attractions or activities, or pay for a wristband to enjoy ALL the things!

The success of any fundraiser depends on help from the community, so please consider sponsoring an activity or making a donation if you aren’t able to join us on Saturday. We can’t continue to grow our services and support of former foster youth in Texas without you!
