"Finding Grey Dawg" is the theme for Southern Illinois University Carbondale's Family Carnival. 

This year's free event is set for 3 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 27 in the Student Recreation Center's West Gymnasium.

Arts, crafts, games, snacks and more await SIU students, faculty and staff families with children.

As dozens of resource tables, families learn about the numerous resources available for them at SIU and in the region, and they will receive clues to help them find the elusive Grey Dawg. When they piece together the clues and locate SIU's mascot, they will win a special surprise. 

The Family Carnival is a collaborative event involving numerous campus units and departments along with community organizations.
