Fireman’s Carnival starts June 16

 

The third year of the reincarnation of the Granville Fireman’s Carnival starts June 16 at 6 p.m. and continues through Saturday, June 18.

The summer fireman’s carnival was brought back by the Hook & Ladder Company in 2009 after the joint carnival with all of the fire companies in the village halted in 2007.

This year the midway will be rumbling with kids screaming on the rides as the summer scents of cotton candy, fried dough and hamburgers fill the air for three short days. Festivities will continue until about 11p.m. each night.

The fireman’s carnival starts June 16 with Sunday, June 19, as a rain date for the parade and fireworks.

“We’re hoping everyone will come out and join us and have a good time,” treasurer and carnival co-chair Dan Roberts said.

The fire fighters are still seeking musical acts for Thursday and Friday night. Interested bands should call the firehouse at 642-2401 or 642-2320.

Each acts are asked to play for about three hours during the time the midway is open.

Capping off the musical performances Saturday will be another local act ‘Kissmummy’ with opening act ‘Bad Dog Spot.’ 

The parade lines up at 4 p.m. Saturday and steps off promptly at 5 p.m., returning to the carnival grounds for the continuation of the carnival. Firefighters seek floats and entrants for the parade. Kids interested in joining in the parade can decorate their bikes to ride along. Local organizations will be approached and asked if they would like to enter a float in the parade as well, Roberts said.

The parade will leave the carnival lot on Park Street and proceed up to Church Street to Main Street and back on Potter Avenue and back to the carnival lot off East Potter Avenue for the kickoff of the final night of summer fun.

Fireworks will light up the Granville night sky Saturday starting about 10:45 p.m.

The midway, provided again by Family Fun Amusements, will open each night of the carnival at 6 p.m. and run until 11 p.m.

For those who can’t get enough of the rides, each night of the carnival will be wristband night. As many as 10 vendors are also expected on the carnival grounds.
