Carnival Days coming up June 21-22

The 58th annual Petersburg Carnival Days will be June 21 and 22, 2016.
On Tuesday, the opening ceremonies and flag raising by Boy Scout Troop #155 will be held at 7 p.m. on Main Street.
The kid’s races (foot races, diaper race and slow bike races for ages 12 and under) will follow.
On Wednesday, a barbecue sponsored by Great Plains State Bank will be held at 6 p.m. at the downtown park. Boone Central Middle School students will have a watermelon feed and face painting. The flag raising will be by the Petersburg American Legion Post 334, not the Boy Scouts as advertised.
There will be a commissioning of new park equipment by the Petersburg Village Park Board and a Jr. Reicks dedication by Ross Knott.
D. C. Lynch Carnival will be on the streets both nights.
Advance ticket sales are at Great Plains State Bank and Rae Valley Market.
Carnival Days is sponsored by Petersburg Community Club. Carnival committee members are Jeff and Jan Temme, 402-843-8440, Allen Thorberg, Ross Knott, Clyde Stuhr, Jimmy and Joelle Feeney, Marc and Ashley Pelster.
Petersburg American Legion Club will be serving food on Tuesday evening.
