Young children played carnival games, ate cotton candy and participated in a miniature athletic competition at the Spring Fair and Triathlon fundraiser hosted by Children’s Creative Workshop at Point Dume Marine Science School on May 17.

The kids enjoyed several booths in which they received face painting and temporary tattoos. Other booths gave children the opportunity to create spin art.

Children 3, 4 and 5 years old competed in a triathlon in three separate heats. The participants sat in a kiddy pool and pretended to swim, then rode tricycles on the pavement, then ran a short distance. When they finished, each child received a medal.

The event was a fundraiser for the Creative Workshop, which is a nonprofit preschool that encourages children to be creative with art, music, math and reading. Several items, such as clothes, toys, wine, hotel stays and more, were being auctioned off throughout the event.
