On December 8th, Parenting Journey hosted dozens of families for our Annual Family Holiday Carnival, a yearly celebration in honor of the hardworking mothers, fathers, and caregivers we serve. As in years past, friends and family joined together to share a meal, dance, play games, and make holiday crafts.
This year, in addition to face painting, photos with Santa, cookie decorating, and magic by The Magic of David Hall, Parenting Journey was able to offer a video game truck by East Coast Gaming — a huge hit with kids of all ages — and brought in a professional DJ from TeamAllStart to spin music and put people in a party mood. Both were so popular with the crowd that we expect to see then again next year.
Parenting Journey staff worked hard to make the event a success and their efforts paid off in smiles and laughter. Although a lot of work goes into making an event like this, ask any of our team and they will tell you that it is something they look forward to all year. Noël Twigg, Senior Director of Project Management said, “This was my third year face painting and each has been better than the last. It’s a lot of work but it is so much fun. It’s definitely my favorite Parenting Journey event of the year.”
