Guests will find all the fun of a fair, along with opportunities for fellowship, at Signal Mountain Baptist's first Community Carnival.

Everyone is welcome at the free event, to be held rain or shine at the church Sunday, June 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The event will feature several large inflatables, at least 15 carnival games with prizes, lots of activities, and free hot dogs, chips and drinks. It will be held in the church parking lot, weather permitting, or in the on-site Christian Life Center.

"We're reaching out to more of our community and offering a safe, inexpensive way for families to spend some time together," said Sally Ensley, the church's minister of families and children, emphasizing that the event is for people of all ages. "Even adults without children would find something to do, even if it's just to eat free hot dogs and fellowship with other people."

Kids will also have a chance to sign up for the church's vacation Bible school, open to preschoolers through rising sixth-graders, to be held Monday-Thursday, June 4-7 from 6:30-8:45 p.m. each day. The church created its own program and materials for this year's Bible school, "The Greatest Show on Earth," which has a circus theme.

Signal Mountain Baptist Church is at 939 Ridgeway Ave. To register online for vacation Bible school, visit
