This week sees the carnival coming to town, the annual parade down the city streets and Boat Night activities leading up the big boat race on Saturday, but Thursday it's all about the kids with the Family Night activities. Tom Seppo at Operation Transformation tells us the traditional activities by his organization are all free. They'll have pony rides, face painting, clowns and magic, plus music and other fun family friendly activities. Seppo says it takes a staff of about 20 to plan and coordinate the activities, with them raising about $10-thousand dollars for the Family Night event. The location is along the northwest corner of the Black River by the 10th Street Bridge.
