The annual event was hosted by the youth of Cub Scout Pack 684’s Bear Den as part of their “Grin and Bear it” elective adventure.

The Scouts had to plan the carnival, invite parents and youth from their pack and then run the program with the help of their parents, according to a news release from Chuck Mahaleris, district chairman for the Kennebec Valley District of Scouting.
