The Carnival is coming to town and will be operating on the Center Mall site on Thursday, July 19 from 5-10 pm, Friday, July 20, from 5-10 pm, Saturday, July 21 from 3-10 pm and Sunday, July 22 from 12 – 6 pm. Commorford & Sons from Goshen, Connecticut are bringing their carnival to Bristol as a summertime fundraiser for the New England Carousel Museum. Bring the kids for some good old fashion fun that includes fluffy cotton candy, fried dough with sugar or pizza sauce, candy apples, and all of your favorite fair foods. Take a ride atop of the 50 foot high Ferris Wheel, or ride the speedy swing ride. The scrambler can mix things up and if you dare to defy gravity, the Gravitron will give you that thrill. Kiddieland is a great activity for the little ones with the favorites, the merry-go-round, fun slide, bounce house, air planes, cars, and don’t forget to ride the tea cups. If you’re looking for teddy bears you can test your skill at the water game, the balloon pop and if you are feeling strong test your strength on the high striker, Try your hand at the shoot out the star game and see if you can climb to the top of the rock wall. Kids can also get their faces painted. For more information call the Carousel Museum or visit the website.
