BERKELEY HEIGHTS — The annual Courtyard Carnival drew residents, patients and visitors to the Long Term Care Courtyard at Runnells Specialized Hospital of Union County in Berkeley Heights. The popular event was organized by the facility’s Activities Therapy Department.
There were activities galore to be enjoyed from the Quiver Farms Petting Zoo’s animals, and games like Plinko, Krazy Kans and Mini Golf to having your caricature done, listening to the music of DJ Brian Cox and watching the amazing magician “Alex Cadabra.” Winner after winner at the games went to the “prize room” to pick their reward for games well played.
The carnival was made possible in part due to the generosity of the facility’s Volunteers Guild which donated some of the funding and a Runnells employee who contributed the Italian ices.
