The Como Planetarium will offer free shows during the evening (get your free tickets early; seating is limited).
The carnival will have more than 15 games, three large bouncers, a snack walk, Scholastic Book Fair, a basket raffle, Bingo, a silent auction, games, a dunk tank, a crazy hair booth and face painting.
The St. Paul Mounted Police will visit with their horses and the St. Paul Canine Unit will conduct demonstrations. Food will be available for purchase and the popcorn is free.
