Elks annual carnival coming

Staff reports

The annual Elks Summerfest brings to Lampe Park the American Traveling Shows’ 13-ride family carnival and games.

The Washoe Tribe will sell Indian tacos and the Elks will have food and beverages. Several craft vendors will be on hand.

New this year, said Exalted Ruler Chuck Harris, there will be a petting farm where young and old alike may feed, pet and comb the animals.

Another new event is a Bingo game on Saturday, 7 to 10 p.m., in the park pavilion, put on by the Footprint Association. Only 18-years and older may play, however.

Also new is a face painting booth on Saturday and Sunday, 2 to 5 p.m., sponsored by the ladies of the Elks.

On Sunday afternoon games for kids in age categories are planned, with prizes and gifts to winners:

2 p.m., the Diaper Derby, age to 18 months. Babies crawl to their mothers.

2:30 p.m., Toddlers Milk Bottle Race, age through 2.

3 p.m., Ball Race for 3-year-olds.

3:30 p.m., Sack Race for age 4.

“Bring the whole family for some old-fashioned fun and food and family carnival and games,” Harris said.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will help serve on Saturday, and the Explorer Post Scouts will direct traffic.

Additional parking will be provided at the corner of Waterloo and Centerville Road (State Route 756). No parking is allowed on the south side of Waterloo across from the park.

Carnival tickets are available at the pre-sale price of $7 per book through Wednesday, July 8, at noon, at the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce, Wally’s Wieners and Les Schwab Tires in Gardnerville; Red Rooster in the Ranchos; and Nevada Gourmet Grocery, Minden.

Ticket books at the carnival will be $10.

Harris is general chairman of the event; Vic Christ, beverage chairman; Mike Oetting, food chairman; and Grady Goodwin, publicity.
