On October 20-21 the City of Carmi, in conjunction with the Carmi Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting a Halloween Weekend at Burrell’s Woods.
On October 20, those camping will be encouraged to decorate their campsites with a fall theme. “We do ask that the campsites be kept child friendly as we want the children to have a good time and not be afraid of the decorations,” noted Chamber Executive Director Holly Healy. The campsites will be judged and a winner of the best decorated campsite will be announced on October 21 at the costume parade.
Also, on October 20, the movie Monsters University will be show in the campground at 7pm. There is no charge and the public is welcome to attend.
On October 21, a day of fun is planned for families and the community is welcome to attend. The day will start at 10am with a story time with the book, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. At 1:30pm pumpkin decorating will be held at the shelter at the campground. Families are asked to bring their own pumpkins for the event. Markers will be provided. Those wishing to carve a pumpkin should bring their own tools and adult supervision is required.
