There will be no shortage of things to do at the “I Will Be the 1” community carnival where kids can enjoy games, prizes, crafts, performances, food, a stilt walker, face painting, a fun photo booth and more. After the carnival, there will be a concert from 6 to 10pm, by Findlay bands Lucid Spark and The Athen Ry. The event is hosted by the “I Will Be the 1” organization in an effort to provide a family-friendly event while encouraging young people to feel confident and make a difference in their community. “I Will Be the 1” is a non-profit organization that strives to end youth suicide caused by bullying. Proceeds from the carnival will support their mission. Admission tickets will be entered in a drawing for prizes throughout the day. Learn more about the “I Will Be the 1” organization, Findlay resident and founder Mike Terrian, and his book “Gilbert’s Journey” by visiting the website.
