Carnival in progress

The 82nd annual Kilmarnock Volunteer Fire Department Firemen’s Festival will continue through Saturday, August 5, at the KVFD Carnival Grounds, 200 Waverly Avenue, Kilmarnock. Many consider the carnival the last ‘big hurrah’ of the summer. The scene above is from “Big Eli,” the Ferris wheel. The raffle grand prize is a 2017 Toyota Tacoma four-wheel drive pickup truck. Tickets are $10. Tickets may be purchased at the carnival as supplies last. A drawing will be held at the conclusion of the carnival on Saturday. Photo by Mike Antonio
