Community members were able to participate in games, food and a time to enjoy one another’s company at Carbon High School’s homecoming carnival on Thursday.
It has been three years since Carbon High Student Government first started hosting a carnival as part of their homecoming week activities and inviting the public. This year, the event was well attended with students and community members alike.
The carnival offered booths from CHS and local organizations offering classic carnival games such as a cake walk, a bean-bag toss, a sucker pull and many others. There was also food offered by clubs and organizations for those attendees who wished to dine at the event.
“I think it’s turning out pretty good so far,” senior class president Madison Burrola said amidst the noise of people as they moved from booth to booth. The event was created to involve the younger members of the community, Burrola explained.
The night started with a chance to enjoy classic carnival games and proceeded to a showing of the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” on the football field. The night’s final activities were a fireworks show and a burning of a wooden “C,” which, despite technical difficulties, concluded the night of celebrations.
