Civic Center Safe Halloween Carnival
For some kids the Rushmore Safe Halloween Carnival at the Civic Center is an event they look forward to every year, but it costs money to put on.
And that's why last year the event almost didn't happen, because donations are tough to come by in these tough economic times.
But this year is looking a lot better.
This event costs about $8,000 to put on each year.
This year the Rushmore Safe Halloween Carnival committee is asking for smaller donations from individuals and businesses.
Those on the committee are confident that way donations are a bit easier to come by.
“We have about 15,000 kids come through the door. People have often written and said there can't possibly be that many kids in Rapid City. Oh yes there can be," says Kristi Thielen of the Safe Halloween Carnival committee.
If you'd like to help, you can either by donating your time or money, call 605-341-0442.
