National Tom Sawyer Days started in Hannibal Wednesday afternoon.
While the Carnival was filled with rides, games and family fun, event organizers wanted to make sure there were safety guidelines in place.
before the event opened to the public, social distancing guidelines and hand sanitizer stations were set in place.
"The community was totally behind it. They are anxious to get out in the world and do it safely, but have some fun with the families. Everybody has been inside an awfully long time," Event Manager Teresa Noerper said.
Noerper said that the Carnival will be open throughout the July 4th weekend.
