CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Fall Carnival runs 6-10 p.m. at Old Spanish Trail Park, next to the Crestview Police department and Stillwell Boulevard.

Armbands cost $15 tonight, but the cost will be $18 on Friday and Saturday. Armbands allow patrons unlimited rides for the evening. 

Gates may stay open later on Friday and Saturday night, organizers said.

"We usually shut down after ticket sales die down," said Larry Woolley, president of the non-profit North Okaloosa Radio Emergency Associated Communications Team, or REACT, the event sponsor.

REACT assists volunteer organizations and authorities in providing radio communications during emergencies. “The very latest the gates would be open would be midnight.”

Carnival proceeds will help purchase radio equipment for the organization, Woolley said.

"We have quite a few rides for kids and adults and games," Woolley said. Food will also be available.
