Gary Moskowitz BURBANK VILLAGE -- Several thousand Burbank residents attended the Burbank International Children's Film Festival carnival Saturday and Sunday in the Burbank Village. Chris Shoemaker, executive director of the annual film festival, said the carnival was a chance for Burbank families to come together and celebrate the community they call home. "It was marvelous, because families came and spent time together," Shoemaker said. "At one point, I looked out and saw a kiddie train ride full of mothers and children, all of different ethnic backgrounds, and it was beautiful."

Paul Clinton MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- Warner Bros. opened one of its back lots Sunday to children from Southland charities and community groups for carnival games, food and rides. Children from three Burbank groups -- Boys and Girls Club of Burbank, YMCA of Burbank and Burbank Outreach Center -- were among those tossing softballs at milk bottles, wolfing down hot dogs and frolicking with Bugs Bunny. There was even a Ferris wheel. Studio chairman and CEO Barry Meyer said he was pleased with the carnival's success.
