Cobalt Carnival — an end-of-summer picnic hosted by the Bell County Democrats, Stonewall Democrats, and the Bell County Texas Democratic Women — is from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.

The picnic is being held in at the Central Texas Sportsmans Club, 685 Centex Sportsman Road, Belton.

Will Hailer, executive director of the Texas Democratic Party, and Louie Minor, District 31 congressional candidate, are scheduled to speak at the event.

A meet-and-greet is planned for candidates attending the picnic.

The public is invited to taste chili prepared for the chili cook-off by local organizations and candidates.

Other food includes hamburgers, turkey burgers, hot dogs, chips and treats.

The Pride & Joy Band will perform. In addition to a bounce house for children, there will be group activities and games.

For more information, call the Bell County Democrats at 254-813-5123.
