Halloween Carnival

Release Date: 

Another Successful Halloween Carnival!

Over 1,000 individuals attended the Halloween Carnival at the Pendleton Convention Center where bingo, refreshments, a Halloween movie and so many fun carnival booths awaited them.  There were many wonderful and creative costumes, with many adults getting into the spirit just as much as their children.  

The annual carnival is a great, safe, and climate controlled, way for families to enjoy the holiday.  Thanks to all the sponsors and the almost 100 volunteers who helped make the carnival a huge success!  It is not only a great event to participate in but a wonderful opportunity to connect with the community.
