The oldest and largest student-run carnival in the world, Thurtene provides a unique opportunity for both mentors and students. With the assistance of local businesses such as Noodles and Company and Chill Frozen Yogurt, Books and Basketball has hosted an award-winning game booth for the past three years. Meanwhile, a handful of students receive free admission to the the carnival. This enables mentors to connect with students in a drastically different atmosphere while also increasing outreach within the greater St. Louis community.
The 2014 Thurtene Carnival will be held from April 11-13.
