This event is being hosted by the Floyd County 4H Corporation, Inc., a group of 15 volunteers. This is a free event with candy given from local businesses in the community.

    Others making appearances will be: Sporty from Sports Clips, Big Boy, Buddy from the Fun House, and Derby Dinner Playhouse will have their own special guest make an appearance. A Class Act will be the DJ’s for the night. A moon bounce will be set up by Parks and Recreation.
    If you are a business, and would like to participate in the Costume Carnival, please call Lisa Duffy at (812) 987-6086. Tables are free, and the business provides candy for the children.
    A special thanks to Your Community Bank for being a prime sponsor for this event.
