When you visit this year's Glen Burnie Carnival, set for July 31 through Aug. 8 behind the Glen Burnie Improvement Association building on Crain Highway, be sure to stop by the information booth and pick up a copy of the 1992 Glen Burnie Carnival Program Book. In the early years, this keepsake gave carnival-goers a nightly schedule of events. Today, this book focuses on the community events, organizations and services supported by the improvement association.
Because "Family Tradition" is the heart and soul of Glen Burnie's carnival, this year's Program Book Committee decided to create a carnival family album. You might see someone you know as you flip through the pages.
