Lori Morsching, right, stops to photograph her daughter, Gabby Petersen, center, and her friend Karmane Holmes, 9, at left, as they attend the annual Iowa Central 3rd Grade Carnival at Fort Frenzy where, among other fun things, they got to meet Triton, the school’s mascot. Over 12,000 third-grade children have attended the event in its 40-year history. Snacks, prizes and fun were on tap for the children and their adult.
