Two delicious food trucks will be on site:  Bubble and Brew will be brewing up Specialty Teas, Bubble Teas, Espresso drinks and fresh baked goods. DrewbaQ will serve up pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket, mac n’ cheese, corn bread and more smoked BBQ delights.

Admission and parking is free. Wristbands for unlimited rides will be sold for $25 each for the following time slots:  Friday 6-10 p.m., Saturday 12-5 p.m., Saturday 5-10 p.m., and Sunday 12-5 p.m.. Individual ride tickets are also available. Members of the Rotary Club will be manning the ticket booth and assisting with wristbands.

Rotary Carnival chair Patrick Russo said, “This is a wonderful family-friendly event that’s fun for all ages. The rides are great and the games test your skill at winning prizes. We’ll have a lot of good food to offer, plus it’s a terrific way to start off the school year. The carnival is Rotary’s biggest fundraiser, and all proceeds go back into the community to support needed projects as well as global humanitarian programs led by Rotary International. So be sure to come out and join us over carnival weekend.”
