Family Fun Fair returns to Berkeley Branch of OCL

BERKELEY Did you ever wonder where you could see a big magenta dragon dance the “hokey-pokey?” That was one of many sights spotted during the annual Family Fun Festival held on Feb. 7 at the Berkeley Branch of the Ocean County Library.

Activities included free balloon animals, crafts, face painting, games and a bake sale.  Children laughed as they exercised along with Berkeley Branch librarian Kathy Erikson and Sparks, Ocean County Library’s dragon mascot.

Sparks provided two exercise programs that involved a bit of dancing.  Sparks was greeted with hugs, hi-fives and smiles.

One visitor commented that “this event really made our day. We weren’t sure how to entertain our grandchildren who are spending the day with us. “When we learned about this event we knew we should go. This was perfect.’’

A library volunteer read stories in the children’s area while other participants enjoyed a variety of games held inside the branch’s meeting room.

The popular event which started in 1999 was sponsored by the Friends of the Berkeley Library.  This event had bake goods available throughout the day as well as library staff and Teen Advisory Board members running the game room.
