The Mount St. Helens Institute is encouraging families to attend its second annual Carnival of Colors, which will feature live music, face painting, art workshops, puzzles and games.
The carnival will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15 at the mountain’s Science and Learning Center at Coldwater.
Quentin Comus, a 16-year-old Boy Scout from Newberg, Ore. will kick off the event by installing a permanent 30-foot flagpole. For his Eagle Project, Comus also plans to build two wheelchair-accessible changing rooms; paint the 14,000 square foot visitor center; and update the fire evacuation signage.
The event will also include crafts, exhibits and a photo booth station. Lunch is available for purchase.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Reduced price tickets are available for low-income families.
