Unity Square conducted its annual Park Carnival July 14, at the Courthouse Park in Milbank. The carnival has become a tradition for the community.
Young and old alike continued to enjoy the cake walk, duck pond, ring toss, plinko, soccer kick, and fire trucks rides. New features included horse and buggy rides, a water balloon throw, and inflatables. A Hardee’s roast beef sandwich meal was served.
All proceeds go to support the general operational costs of Unity Square. Unity Square director Jerry Jungers commented on the turn out this year, “With the new activities, the reception and attendance was slightly ahead of the last few years.”
Unity Square was built in 1995 and took over the production of the Park Carnival that year. Prior to that, the carnival was run by the City of Milbank Parks and Recreation department.
