“The carnival is next weekend”
They’ve been setting up for the Firemen’s Annual Carnival for well over a week. It takes place in the park Maddie and I walk through. We’ve been watching as the burger shack went up, then the beer shack and then the carnies arrived. First a lone trailer, then the rides, then the work started.
They will fire up the grills and the generators tomorrow at 6:00 PM. I’m planning to eat there on Friday and I hope to catch the parade on Saturday. I can see the fireworks from our driveway, if it doesn’t take two of us to console the dog.
The firemen serve pretty standard fair-food, burgers, hot dogs, fries and fried dough. They added hot sausage grinders several years ago, and it was a welcome addition. It will be interesting to see what they have for beer this year, because the regular drivers are still locked-out.
I’ve been going to this carnival for years. Truth be told, I don’t go for the food. I go to show some support. It’s easy to support these guys – they are here for us 24 hours a day – 365 days a year.
