BOTETOURT CO., Va. -

Great weather helped make this year's Buchanan carnival a success.

The town's mayor tells WDBJ7- the carnival brought in about 72-thousand dollars.

That's more than last year.

About 37-thousand dollars will fund Emergency Services and the rest of it is being reinvested into the carnival grounds for maintenance and upgrades, like new bathroom facilities.

The mayor says the Buchanan carnival saw its highest attendance on the 4th of July when more than 5-thousand people visited!
