SLIDESHOW: Carnation's community Fourth of July

The community of Carnation hosted a full day of Fourth of July fun, with plenty of activities to thrill the senses.

Runners competed for sweet rewards in the Run for the Pies, and car buffs showed off their hard work and classic finds in the Hot Rods and Harleys show.
