The carnival has been a school tradition for many years and proceeds from the event are used by the Lincoln Boosters to purchase items for students, teachers and the school building.
A number of Lincoln Boosters, parents and friends have been busy the past several months planning and organizing the carnival, and they are hoping for a large turnout to this annual event featuring lots of fun, food and prizes.
