The Carnival Is Coming!
Katalina’s Café Corner is celebrating its grand re-opening by giving back to Harrison West. From 3 until 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 2, Café Corner will host an old-fashioned carnival to raise money for art in Harrison Park
The carnival promises to be fun for both kids and adults! Games, music, old-fashioned carnival food and sodas, plus quirky cocktails will be among the attractions at the fundraiser, which will also feature performance artists, face-painters, balloon artists, a gypsy fortune-teller, a photo booth, jugglers, clowns, piñatas and more!
Zeno’s will offer up roasted peanuts and also open its doors across the street to carnival revelers looking for a place to sit and sip after carousing at the carnival all afternoon.
Why the big show? The Harrison West Society and the Columbus College of Art and Design have sponsored a student art competition to generate four works of art to be installed in Harrison Park, the Short North’s newest park. In February 2009, Short North residents and business owners selected the first two sculptures: Mallory McClellan’s Sycamore and Amanda C. Vandenberg’s Riparian. Money raised at Katalina’s Carnival will fund awards for the next two student artists with winning entries.
Harrison Park will be a destination for the whole Short North community, ensuring that residences and businesses alike will have green space, blue sky, and the great outdoors right outside, well, their doors.
Come and support Harrison West and the Harrison Park Art Fund, whydoncha? Come to Katalina’s Cafe Corner Saturday, October 2, and enjoy an early autumn afternoon with your neighbors at an old-fashioned carnival!
