Candy count

The Wayne County Museum will be the host of a candy count contest that is open to children in kindergarten through grade 5.

The count will be Saturday at 1 p.m. Participants must be there on time to receive a ticket and need to have at least one person with them who is at least 16 years old. That person must stay throughout the contest.

There will be a tour of the museum and then participants will guess how many candies are in a glass jar. The winner will be announced at 2 p.m., and prizes will be given. A candy count party will be held afterward.

For more information, call 734-5023. The museum is at 116 N. William St. in Goldsboro.
