MARYSVILLE — A local craft shop is organizing a “Fun in the Sun” carnival for kids of all ages.

Craft Mart’s event will take place Saturday, Aug. 9, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the store in the Marysville Mall.

Featured events include an ice cream eating contest, a cake walk, face painting, a coloring contest and various gifts and prizes.
