A fun-filled weekend took place at the Helper Civic Auditorium on Friday and Saturday as community members flocked to the annual Saint Anthony Catholic Carnival. There was dinner both nights along with many booths and games for attendees to enjoy.
On Thursday evening, there was a turkey dinner for the community while Saturday evening featured Mexican-theme fare with enchiladas, rice and beans. An adult plate was $12, while children under 12 enjoyed plates at half price. Takeout boxes were also available.
Starting at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, there was a carnival upstairs. Along with games, there were booths, BINGO, raffles, face painting and a silent auction. Booths were selling homemade foods and goodies, among other homemade items.
Proceeds from the carnival will directly benefit the Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Helper and its charitable programs.
