Buchanan Community Carnival kicks off tonight

Posted: Updated:
The 61st annual Buchanan Community Carnival kicks off in Botetourt County today.

The nine day carnival features rides, games, a new rubber duck race down the James River and plenty of fair food. All the money raised will go to the town's emergency services.

Thousands of people are expected to attend, drawing new and old faces to the historic town.

"It definitely opens up the town," said Mayor Larry Hall. "They go off Main Street to Lower Street and they see the improvements we've made by the river and all of the history we have."

New this year, the carnival is offering discounted tickets for opening night for only $10. Normally tickets are $25.

It all starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the Buchanan fairgrounds along the James River.
