TRUMBULL, Conn. — One sure sign that spring has sprung in Trumbull is the start of The Rotary Club's annual carnival.
This year's event — the 29th annual carnival — will be held at Hillcrest Middle School daily from Tuesday, April 11, through Friday, April 14, from 6 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, April 15, from 1 to 10 p.m.
Admission is free. Rides and games are provided by Stewart Amusements. Tickets for rides and games may be purchased individually. Wrist bands can be purchased for $25, which guarantees unlimited rides throughout day of purchase. Hamburgers, hot dogs, beverages, and a variety of snacks will be available from the Rotary Grill Tent, and Vazzy’s will supply pizza.
The carnival is one of Rotary’s top fundraising events. Proceeds benefit Trumbull schools, seniors, nonprofits and community projects in the greater Trumbull community.
The Trumbull Rotary Club’s many ongoing projects include providing $18,000 in college scholarship awards to graduating high school residents, dictionaries to all Trumbull third grade students, participation in Trumbull Read Aloud, and an annual senior citizens picnic, funding for special enrichment and educational programs to children in Bridgeport, support for a variety of veterans programs, water filters for villages in Third World countries and many other important causes throughout the year.
