"Candyland®" and "Carnival" are themes for bingo games being presented in February by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

Bingo prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses. For Johnson County residents, the cost for each two-hour program is $5 per person in advance, or $6 on the day of the event. For nonresidents, the cost is $6 in advance, or $7 on the day of the event. Cost of admission covers food (or snacks) and staff time to administer the bingo program. No additional charge for bingo.
