What child (or adult) doesn't love to win a prize or walk away with free candy? We need candy and prizes to make sure everyone keeps a smile and has a great time at the carnival.

 

Feel free to send excess or clearanced Halloween candy, unfortunately we can't accept chocolate or anything with peanuts. (chocolate melts and gets yucky real fast)

 

Prizes must be new and in new packaging.
