When cancer came, one local family fought back.

Saturday, $10,000 was raised for 2-year-old Grayson Franklin's chemotherapy treatments.

Grayson's mother travels with him every three weeks for his treatment and is overwhelmed by the support from the community.

Plenty of carnival games awaited visitors, as well as a chili cook-off and a live band.
