The event is designed to raise awareness for the rising issue of bullying in America.

WHAT: The Texas Tech University Ethics Project Group will host an Anti-Bullying Carnival. The Ethics Project Group is a class project for the Introduction to Ethics course in the Department of Philosophy, which is housed within the College of Arts & Sciences. The group's goal is to do good in the community.

WHEN: 4-7 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 21)

WHERE: Urbanovsky Park, 1701 Flint Ave.

EVENT: The Ethics Project Group will host a carnival to raise awareness of bullying in the Lubbock community. Bullying has become a rising issue in America, with instances being seen in schools and work places. With advancements in technology, like social media, children and adults also can be targeted in their own homes.

The carnival will offer food and drink, face-painting, glitter tattoos, a spider climber, bounce houses and anti-bullying arts and crafts. The event also will feature people with crazy-colored hair, speakers, a DJ, a bean bag toss, the Masked Rider and Pittman's Petting Zoo.

The Ethics Project Group invites the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities to join them in pledging to stop bullying. The group will be selling anti-bullying T-shirts, in both child and adult sizes, that will be available before and at the carnival.

Purchase a T-shirt here or email the form to ethicsproject939@gmail.com. Wristbands for carnival activities will be $10 and can be preregistered for here.
