Former Raider Marshawn Lynch throws free carnival for kids of Oakland


Marshawn Lynch is from the Bay Area, and he loves his community. The Oakland native, and former Raider, has a shop in the area near Jack London Square, and even appeared in front of the Oakland City Council on behalf of the A's earlier this year.

That's where he calls home. 

In his latest act of kindness and support, the running back held a carnival on Tuesday for kids in the Oakland area -- and everything was free:

NFL cornerback Marcus Peters, Lynch's longtime friend who also is a native of The Town, helped put on the festivities as well.

There was food and rides in the West Oakland neighborhood -- and we're talking legitimate rides in what was originally thought to be something small.

But that's not what Lynch is about.

Good on you, guys.
