More than 8,000 people enjoyed the 26thannual Children’s Day Festival presented by BI-LO Oct. 20.

Buddy Banana and Becky Broccoli were on hand to greet children and families at the free event, which allowed children to select between time-honored festival games and pony rides as well as enormous inflatable slides and gigantic jump castles and wall climbing.

Other activities included a petting zoo, balloon art, face painting, live entertainment and an exhibit from the South Carolina Aquarium.

Several BI-LO Associates from Charleston, S.C. area stores staffed the BI-LO booth, where festival-goers sampled fresh apples and met some of Walter’s Pals.

Sales from food concessions at the festival were offered by and benefited East Cooper Schools.
