Celebrate Fall with carnival games, rides, and magic at the Highland Crest college campus Fall Carnival in Springfield. The event is organized by the Volunteer State Community College Student Government Association and it’s open to the public. Magician Eric Tyree will entertain the crowd with tricks. The magic shows happen at 10 a.m. and noon. There will be popcorn, snow cones and even Halloween bags for the first 100 kids. It’s all free. On the benefit side of things, there will be a barbecue cook-off and a silent auction held to raise money for the Robertson County Meals on Wheels program. Local vendors will be on hand so that people can get a jump on holiday shopping. It’s also a good way for the public to come out and see the Vol State Highland Crest campus. The Fall Carnival will be held on Saturday, October 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The campus is located just off of Highway 431 on Billy Batson Parkway.
