Leeds is getting a carnival for the first time in about 15 years.
The carnival will be held Oct. 24-28 in downtown Leeds on 27 acres between the Leeds Area Chamber of Commerce and Lehigh Cement Co.
Sandra McGuire, executive director of the Leeds Chamber, arranged with Sonshine Amusements to bring the carnival to Leeds. This is the same company that runs carnivals in Trussville and Moody.
Sales of wristbands and tickets will pay for the carnival, so no city or chamber funds are being used.
