Public can enjoy traditional activities at Fall Carnival Saturday

For the second year, students of Cassville, through their groups and organizations, will put on a Fall Carnival for the community.

There will be booths and activities to enjoy, as well as food and a silent auction.

Elaine Boles, adult co-chairman of youth advisory board, said this is the second annual fall carnival. The youth advisory board puts on the carnival, then the clubs and organizations from the high school participate by having booths and activities.

The carnival is held at First Christian Church at 1st Street and Highway 37 on Saturday from 2-6 p.m.

Activities that will be available include a bounce house, petting zoo, barrel rides, cake walk, digging for dinos, duck pond and many others.

Food will also be available at the carnival. People will be able to purchase hot dogs, chips, corn dogs, giant chocolate chip cookies, soda, cotton candy and popcorn.

“Also, we are making a tunnel for the smaller children to crawl through,“ Boles said. “We will have crayons there for the children to color on the outside of the tunnel.”

There is no cost to get into the event, however, tickets will be for sale for 25 cents each for the booths, food and activities.

“There will be a silent auction set off to the side,” Boles said. “The community has really stepped up and donated a lot to the silent auction. We will have a board set up to let people know when last call for the auction is.”

Boles said proceeds from the event will go to the participants, so those groups will turn in their tickets at the end of the carnival, and they will receive the 25 cents per ticket to their club or organization.

“Last year, we saw 300 children come through,” Boles said. “Hopefully, this year we can double that, since we will be in a more visible location.”

Boles said the fall carnival is a way to let the community know what good kids Cassville has.

“The church is letting us use their property and has been very gracious,” Boles said. “We hope for people come in and have a great time, have fun and really enjoy the kids.”
