PHOTO GALLERY: El Campo carnival delivers games, prizes and fun

VALE - The fun vibe descended on a section of gravel behind the rodeo bleachers Friday night as the El Campo carnival kicked off with an assortment of games and prizes.

The carnival, the work of volunteers and spearheaded by Sarah Rodriguez, who owns Luzetta's Flowers, was a big hit with youth and adults. El Campo is designed to raise funds for Vale youth baseball. Rodriguez said this year the event raised $3,500.
