The Carnival is back!

8 Jul

This awesome aerial photo of the Firemen’s Carnival is courtesy the Webster Volunteer FD Facebook page.

This coming week is one of my favorites of the entire Webster year, because this it’s CARNIVAL WEEK!

The 2019 Webster Firemen’s Carnival will open up shop this coming Wednesday night at 6 p.m., then run Thursday and Friday night from 6 to “close” (not sure when this is, but I know the entertainment ends at 11), and then all day Saturday from noon to midnight.

For details about every day’s activities, visit the Carnival’s Facebook page or web page. But here are some highlights:

  • Wednesday July 10 is Craft Beer night featuring wine and lots of local breweries. Entertainment by Claudia Hoyser from 7 to 10 p.m., rides, games, food and drink all night.
  • Thursday July 11, the HUGE Firemen’s Parade kicks off at 6:30 p.m. from Phillips and Main, and travels west down Main through the village to Firemen’s Field. This is a don’t-miss event, especially for kids. Lots of fire trucks, candy and clowns.
  • Friday July 12, entertainment in the beer tent is provided by Stateline from 8 to 11 p.m.
  • Saturday July 13, the Kiddie Parade starts at Spry Middle School at noon. kiddieRegistration begins at 11 a.m. Even if your family is not participating, this is a great parade to watch, and there’s lots of candy thrown (sometimes at high velocity. You might want to consider a helmet). At the festival proper, there are bike and grill raffles at 4:30 p.m. for kids 16 and under, and live entertainment is provided by Knight Patrol. The festival concludes with a huge fireworks display at midnight.

Pre-sale ride tickets for every night are available for a discounted price, so check out one of the websites for more information about that.
