Recently we added a children's costume contest for kids 12 and under.  Get ready for it!  It was a huge hit.

This down-home party offers great food, drinks, and prizes awarded to the best or weirdest parade participants. We are considering moving it to Town Hall in 2019.

So, if you're really going to get in the Carnival spirit, YOU GOTTA WEAR A COSTUME.
