Firemen’s Carnival starts tonight

I t’s time for a parade, fireworks and three days of amusement at the Granville Hook and Ladder’s Firemen’s Carnival starting tonight.

With 12 new rides for both adults and children, the option to purchase an unlimited wristband and various other attractions, the event will offer something for everyone.

In addition to the rides, there will be nightly shows. Phil Hoyt will play country music on Thursday from 6 to 8:30 p.m., and D.J. True Grit will be at the event as well. There will be all the favorite games including dime pitch, a cake booth, a fish pond and a t-shirt game.

New this year will be cow plop bingo, which the West Pawlet fire department is helping with.

And for the little ones there will be a fire truck kids’ ride, and for families an adult and child train ride, as well as a Ferris wheel and boat ride. The fire department will also set up its own bounce house, which will cost $1.

To kick off the carnival, a parade will step off at 5 p.m. at the firehouse, continuing up Main Street and across Church Street to the carnival grounds on East Potter Avenue. On Saturday night at 10:30 there will be fireworks, and a 50/50 raffle will be offered each night, too.

To fuel hungry carnival-goers, food, such as hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, clams, and sausage and peppers, will be for sale, and the firemen will sell their own cotton candy and food.

Unlimited ride bracelets cost $20. The carnival is open each day from 6 to 11 p.m., and the rain date will be Sunday, June 16. For more information call 518-642-2401.
