The Peninsula Center Mall Merchants hosted their second annual Halloween Carnival and canned food drive on October 31, 2006. Mall Merchants estimated that over 1,000 children participated in this fun event. For every can of food or dollar donated the children received 5 tickets which they could use to play games at the various Merchants and receive great prizes and treats. They collected over 500 cans of food and over $200 in donations for the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. The children had a wonderful time and adults were happy to have a safe, warm place for their children to have fun. The Peninsula Center Mall also hosts a Winter Market the third Saturday of every month where vendors can register in advance to display their products for free. Registration forms are available with the Mall Merchants or by calling 953-5256.
