Planning the Manito Popcorn festival not only requires many hours from our volunteer committee members, it takes a surprising amount of money.  It has been our goal the last several years to make as many of the activities such as the photo booth, pony rides, inflatables, entertainment, and the petting zoo free to the families of our community.  The only way to do that is through donations from generous benefactors.

If you would like to help, please send your donation directly to:
