Rain forced the event at Halesford Baptist Church inside, including four inflatable games. The carnival continued until some children started complaining of headaches. Chaperones knew something was wrong and evacuated the building. Renee Brown, the Children's Choir Director was one of the organizers at the event who directed the children out of the building.
