The Wilton Rotary Club will again sponsor its traditional family carnival at the corner of School Rd. and Danbury Rd./Rte. 7, taking place this Friday through Sunday, Sept. 13-15.

Carnival hours are Friday, Sept. 13, 6-10 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 14, noon-10 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 15, noon-5 pm.. Staged by Tufano Amusements, the carnival will offer over 11 different rides for a variety of ages as well as multiple games of chance. Food options include Bubble and Brew serving specialty teas, bubble teas, espresso drinks and fresh baked goods; and Planet Pizza.
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.
“This is a wonderful family-friendly event that’s fun for all ages,” says Rotary carnival chair Patrick Russo. “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 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.”
