TERRE HAUTE —
Family fun, live music, food and drinks are all on tap this Friday and Saturday in 12 Points at a Crusader Carnival.
The event, which is to take place in the parking lot of Sacred Heart School, 1330 Lafayette Ave., will benefit John Paul II Catholic High School. Event organizers hope that this is the first of many such carnivals.
“August is the only month of the year without a holiday,” said Robert Flott of B3 Entertainment, a carnival organizer. “We want this to become the official August holiday for Terre Haute.”
Organizers also hope the carnival raises money for the school “by providing great entertainment for people of all ages,” Flott said in a press release.
Carnival games, with prizes, will be available for youngsters, as will a bounce house.
