Habitat For Humanity And ReStore Host Family Carnival At MainX24 Saturday

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area and ReStore will host a carnival at MainX24 on Saturday from 2-5 p.m.

MainX24 is a 24-hour long festival celebrating Main Street and the surrounding Southside, to draw awareness to the revitalization of the urban neighborhood. Habitat will celebrate four years of hosting their family friendly carnival at the 13th annual MainX24.  

We established our carnival as a part of MainC24 to bring all of Main Street into the festivities- including East Main,” said Madison Bradford, development assistant of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga.  “It is a family friendly event that all demographics can take part in, regardless of socioeconomic status. This is crucial to us because that audience represents the families participating in our homeownership or home repairs program.”

Habitat’s carnival will be located at their ReStore, at 1201 East Main St., and will host fun activities, including carnival style games with prizes, cookie decorating, and crafts with free admission. Carnival style games will include; giant jenga, corn hole, and frosty toss. Habitat’s carnival provides fun for the whole family. Each year the carnival continues to grow, with more partners joining in hosting events on East Main Street.

This year, Habitat has partnered with Con Nooga for a light saber battle where contestants will compete to a 30-second music clip. During that time frame, they will show their combat ability, rhythm to music, showmanship and crowd appeal. The winner of the light saber battle will receive free tickets to Con Nooga.

Habitat will serve popcorn for 25 cents and hot dogs for 50 cents. “A family of four can get hot dogs, drinks, decorate cookies, and play games for less than $10,” said Ms. Bradford.

Parking for the carnival will be available at the Habitat ReStore parking lot and public transit through the electric shuttle and CARTA. The Midnight Hop Shuttle will be running from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday and will be stopping by Habitat. The shuttle is free to ride.

The Habitat ReStore will also offer half off of the price of items in the store during the carnival. The Habitat ReStore is a home goods and building materials resale store that supports the work of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga.
