Fireman’s carnival begins Wednesday

I t’s carnival season.
The Granville Hook and Ladder’s annual Firemen’s Carnival will be held Wednesday, June 11 through Saturday, June 14.
“This is probably our biggest fundraiser,” Raymond Bogart, a member of the department said. “Aerial ladders don’t come cheap.”
This year’s carnival will feature more rides than in years past. Bogart said Amyland Amusements will bring a total of 16 rides and wristbands will be available every night.
“They bring quite the variety,” Bogart said, adding there will be rides for kids and kids at heart.
In addition to the rides, there will be nightly shows. Bogart said there will be live entertainment every night. There will also be games, including dime pitch, a cake booth, a fish pond and a t-shirt game.
And of course there will be food. Bogart said members are in the process of revamping the food booth and “with any luck, everything will be located in one place.”
The final night of the carnival, Saturday will be highlighted by a parade at 5 p.m. and a fireworks display at 10:45 p.m. A number of groups will participate in the parade and local residents who want to build a float or kids who would like to decorate their bicycles are invited to be part of the parade.
Bogart said admission to the carnival is free and volunteers try to place an emphasis on affordability.
“Basically you can walk in off the streets and enjoy the festivities. We try to make it something people who can’t get to the Great Escape can come to and at least enjoy the summer.”
The carnival will be open from 6 to 11 p.m. each night and June 15 has been set aside as a rain date.
For more information, or to be part of the parade, call 642-2320 or 642-1243.
