Register now for Little Beans Earth Day Carnival

WELLSBORO — Register now for the Deane Little Beans Earth Day Carnival, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 21 in the outdoor stage area and lawn bordered by Main Street and Central Avenue.

The carnival is free for the first 100 children, 12 and under, and their parents who register by calling the Deane Center at 570-724-6220.

Among the games to be played will be ring toss, corn hole and ball catchers with fun-sized candy prizes. Youngsters can make their own maracas or shoebox guitars and accompany recorded songs played on speakers.

Free popcorn and juice boxes will be provided.

A limited quantity of free recycle bins will be available from the Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority.

Running in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre will be a surprise show in tribute to Earth Day. Also in the theatre will be free readings of “The Lorax,” a children’s book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971. It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the Once-ler.

In case of inclement weather, the carnival will be held in the lobby at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts, 104 Main St.
