I have lived in Carmi my whole life. Its one of those places where you can make fun of it but if an out of towner does you get real offensive about it. Its a small town that has its quirks. We celebrate Corn with out very own Corn mascot- Cornelius. I have enjoyed living in Carmi and have tons of fond memories of it.

I love Carmi. I have lived here my whole 17 years of life. Corn day is the best. We are a close knit community. But if you hang with the wrong people then you will do wrong things
Carmi is a good small town with good people however if you are around the wrong people you get involved in the wrong things.
