MCOE's Annual Special Carnival in collaboration with the Salinas Rodeo
Big smiles were seen when nearly 130 attendees and 29 total registered families from the Special Education classes of the Monterey County Office of Education participated in the "Special Carnival" on Tuesday, July 18, at the Salinas Expo Grounds. The Special Carnival was open only to these students, their families, and the teachers and volunteers who assist them. The Special Carnival is an event made possible in partnership with the Salinas Rodeo and Chairman of the Carnival Committee, Danny Little. Celebrating its 26th year, this annual event allows kiddos with special needs to enjoy a time-honored childhood tradition by giving them a safe, controlled, sensory-friendly environment where they can ride carnival rides with their families.
