Glen Burnie Church to give out school supplies, host carnival

carnivalIt’s colossal. It’s cool. It’s a last blast before school – and best of all, it’s all free.

Abundant Life Church will host its 24th annual Super Saturday Kids Carnival and Family Fun Day on Saturday, Aug. 23, on the church grounds at 7305 E. Furnace Branch Road, Glen Burnie. The church presents this event each year as an act of kindness to the community.

Everything is FREE!

And this year, it’s an hour longer — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The outside carnival atmosphere will include pony rides, a petting zoo, 25+ midway games, the enormous Black Ops Obstacle Course,  18’ Big Kahuna Water Slide (wear your bathing suit and bring a towel, you will get wet!),  a 32-foot Rock Wall, 5-in-1 3D Luau Moon Bounce and a Dunking Booth.  The Anne Arundel County Fire Department will have some of their engines on display.

Inside the air-conditioned building you will find face painting, a tattoo parlor (don’t worry, they’re only temporary), hair salon, Kinect and JustDance games, and caricatures. Costumed characters will be there for some fun selfies and youfies. You also can visit their Community Connections downstairs where several community organizations will be offering free services and goodies.

In 2013, they church partnered with Anne Arundel County Public Schools to give away school supplies.  A record of over 4,000 people attended the event and they were able to give away over 1,500 bags of school supplies.  AACPS and various services will be joining again this year, giving away free school supplies, first-come, first-served.

Free lunch and refreshments, including hot dogs, popcorn, sno-balls and ice cream, will be provided.

Free parking is provided. There is limited parking at the church, but Abundant Life will have numerous satellite parking lots. People and signs will guide guests to these locations throughout the community from which free shuttle service will run beginning at 10 a.m. to until after the event.

The church is located at 7305 E. Furnace Branch Road in Glen Burnie.  For more information call the church office at 410-761-9075 or visit
