Carrot Top stopped by the event to mingle and take photos with fans. He also shared a story with the crowd about recently reading a book to school children called “Super Hair-o and the Barber of Doom,” which is about a boy who thinks he will lose his ‘super powers’ when all of his hair is cut off. “At the end of the book,” said Carrot Top, “the boy realizes he doesn’t need his hair to be super, and that’s exactly the same for kids who lose their hair to cancer.”
