It's that time of year again. 8 Nights of Carnival
By Assistant Chief Charlie Green Jr
April 26, 2023

Carnival runs from Friday, May 26- June 3rd. Carnival opens nightly at 6pm. We will be closed Wednesday May 31 to give our volunteers a night off. As in years past we have partnered with Rosedale Attractions and Shows to bring the community great rides, games and food.

We are offering discounted ride coupons. One coupon is redeemable for one ride all night armband. Coupons purchased until May 15 will be mailed. All coupons purchased after May 16 will be available for pick up at the ride ticket booth or the Fire Co. Carnival office. Coupons will only be available for pick up on the valid discounted ride nights.

Price: $20 a coupon, if purchased at carnival they are $30

Valid: Monday, Tuesday or Thursday of carnival

How to purchase: Follow the QR code, visit, or on sale Tuesday May 16 and May 23 from 5pm-9pm at our Tuesday Night bingo in the social hall

All discounted ride coupons must be purchased by end of Thursday May 25, 2023.

*** We have been made aware of two errors. First. the Presale Discounted Ride Coupons will be good for Monday May 29th as well as Tuesday and Thursday of carnival. Second, Some of the raffle mailers came with 25 tickets instead of the 20. You can return what you would like to buy but if you want to do all 25 tickets it would be $34 dollars. As always thanks for your support.
