BI-LO’s tent featured a ring-the-bell clown game in which children took a swing for the bell to win a prize.​

BI-LO was the presenting sponsor of the 27thannual Mount Pleasant (South Carolina) Children’s Day Festival, which offered many free activities and entertainment for children and families from throughout the area.

As in previous years, thousands of families came to the event, which raised money through concession stand sales for East Cooper schools.

Each year the city of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina puts on a themed carnival day for Low Country children and parents. This year’s festival theme was“Tune Town,” and school booths were decorated in hopes of winning the tune town award!

BI-LO partcipated with a booth that offered games and giveaways. Partcipants lined up throughout the festival to try their hand at ways to win prizes, such as a “ring the bell” hammer game.

BI-LO offered parents an opportunity to register for Hometown Educational Rewards and to enter a raffle for five lucky winners to win a free Birthday cake from BI-LO. Walter’s Pals “Sue Berry” and “Blu Berry” also joined in the fun at the festival as they made their way around smiling and taking pictures with young fans.

“I have been volunteering for the Childrens Festival for many years, and each year it is so much fun seeing how excited the children are for all the games,” said Linda Johnson,U-Scan cashier at BI-LO store No. 5286. “The festival is a great hit for the Mount Pleasant community.”
