Carbondale Boys and Girls Club to hold Blue Door County Fair

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Boys and Girls Club is encouraging families to attend its Blue Door County Fair. 

The free event will take place on August 3rd from 1 to 3 p.m. and will feature games, bounce houses, a dunk tank, and food. The Carbondale Fire Department is also expected to bring it's misting tent. 

Club Officials say the event marks the end of the group's summer programs, which had a county fair theme. "One week we had amusement park physics, so they learned about roller coasters and gravity. Another week we had money management focused on selling tickets," says Tina Carpenter, CEO. 

Following the fair, the Boys and Girls Club will close and reopen on August 20th for its school-year programs. Those will focus on health lifestyles, but the usual homework help and tutoring programs will also be available.
