Volunteers and cakes are needed for the annual Boca Grande Community Center Halloween Carnival.
The two-hour carnival will begin Saturday, Oct. 27, with a costume contest at 2 p.m. sharp. Age groups are 3-under, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12 and the Family/Group division.
Registration will take place in front of the outside stage from 1:30 p.m. to 1:50 p.m. Awards and ribbons will be given to every child.
Everyone is invited to participate in homemade carnival games, dunking Sgt. Jeff Corkhill in the dunk tank, taking a chance in the cake walk or enjoying carnival treats after the costume contest.
Wristbands will be sold for $5 for the games and tickets can be purchased for beverages, popcorn, sno-cones, cotton candy and the cakewalk.
Families are asked to donate one bag or more of individually wrapped soft candy per child. Please drop the candy off no later than today.
