WELLSBORO—The Wellsboro Firemen’s Carnival will open Tuesday, June 7, and remain open through Saturday, June 11. Carnival rides for children, teenagers and adults, food and games will be on the grounds at the Wellsboro Firemen’s Annex at 21 East Avenue in Wellsboro. Hours will be 6-10 p.m. every night, Tuesday through Friday. On Saturday, the carnival will be open from 3-10 p.m.
Wristbands for rides Tuesday through Friday will be $15 each and good for the day of purchase. Wristbands for Saturday rides will be $20 each and good for that day. Individual tickets and strips of tickets will also be available.
Firefighters will be offering hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh cut French fries, hot and sweet sausage sandwiches, funnel cakes and beverages. Bartlebaugh Amusements will have cotton candy, candied apples and beverages.
“The Annex will be open so folks who purchase refreshments will have a place to come in and sit down and eat,“ said Wellsboro Fire Chief Lonnie Campbell. “Our overall goal is to have a great show so folks will attend. The carnival is our major fundraiser with the proceeds serving as the Wellsboro Fire Department’s main source of funding during the upcoming year. We rely on that money to help purchase uniforms and other needed equipment.”
