The Veterans of Foreign Wars carnival run

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Veterans of Foreign Wars hosted a carnival run on Saturday to raise money for the Area 7 Special Olympics.

The Carnival Run consists of a 150 mile ride through Region 8.

This is an annual event that features booths and games for the whole family.

The first riders went out at noon and the last ride in will be at 5:00 p.m.

Unit 8 VFW rider, Josh Wheeler said this event will last all day.

"I would really like to see us top out at $2,000 and I don't think that's too much to hope for. If we get a good turnout from the community, we will definitely get there.”

Each biker paid $20 to participate in Saturday's event.
