ARLINGTON – The city’s annual Fourth of July would not have its usual hometown feel without its Old-Fashioned Carnival at Legion Park.
Hundreds of kids and their adults took part in mostly free games Wednesday.
Lifeway Foursquare Church volunteers put on the event and manned most of the booths.
As usual, two of the most popular activities were face painting and the bouncy houses. There were often lines for both.
Adults got in on the action too, playing giant Connect Four, giant Checkers and giant Jenga.
There was also Cornhole, a patriotic photo booth, plastic pin bowling, ping pong toss, ring toss, nerf gun shooting gallery.
Kids also made crafts that looked like a patriotic sparkler.
Many of the booths gave candy as prizes.
