GALLIPOLIS — The Washington Elementary PTO will hold its annual Fall Carnival between 5-8 p.m. Oct. 1 at Washington Elementary School, 450 Fourth Ave., Gallipolis.

The event is one of the organization’s main fundraisers for the year, and there will be something for everyone. Carnival games will be a major attraction, and will be open from 5-6:30 p.m. Food will also be offered, including pizza, chicken and noodles, hot dogs and cotton candy.
