Halloween Carnival at the Fairgrounds this Saturday, features free books, games, prizes

Caralee and Lilith Helm play games as pirates during some Halloween fun at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in 2016. The fun returns Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the fairgrounds, 11228 McCourtney Road, Grass Valley.

One child had a stack of nonfiction books he wanted from the Story Club of Nevada County.

Rose Gander, with the group that gives free books to children, asked if he was a scientist.

"Yes," the child told Gander as she laughed.

Nevada County kids will have the chance to get their own book from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Halloween Carnival at the Fairgrounds, 11228 McCourtney Road, Grass Valley.

The carnival is at the Main Street Center. The tickets, $5, are sold at the door.

"This will be our second time at this event," Gander said.
