HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) - For $3 kids in grade five or younger could take part in more than 30 activity stations, play carnival games and explore fire trucks and police vehicles at the Autumn Children's Carnival on Saturday in The Holmen Middle School.
The middle school's student council came up with the idea as a community service project to entertain young kids and raise money for the Holmen Area Community Center.
Costumed student council members ran some of the activity stations, including Ellie Euler, who dressed as the Disney character Maleficent and gave out "Tootsie-Roll spiders".
"I'm a part of student council, and I really like volunteering and helping out. And this seemed like a really fun way to volunteer and help out," said Euler.
The council's faculty advisor, Caitlin Clausen, says 95 middle school and high school students volunteered at the event along with adult volunteers.
She also says they will probably continue the event next year.
