Church of the Resurrection Carnival to Try Again

by Harriman Real Estate on April 27, 2015

Church of the Resurrection carnival to try again

Due to the infamously bad weather that we usually experience in April, the Church of the Resurrection carnival was forced to cancel the opening day of festivities and saw a marked drop in attendance for the other three days. Because of this, the carnival organizers are going to try keep the carnival in town this week and open it up again on Friday and Saturday, May 1st and 2nd, to let visitors have another opportunity to enjoy the festival in some more hospitable weather. Right now, the weather outlook for those two days is: afternoon showers on Friday with a high of 54 degrees, and mostly cloudy on Saturday with a highs in the low 60’s.

Carnival committee chairman Paul Bankowski released this statement today which gives more details:

“Wind and unseasonably cold weather have forced the Church of the Resurrection to seek a do over.   Not many in this situation have that option, but with the only major fundraiser and the ailing HVAC system in desperate need of repair the Church at 115 Pond Hill Road in Wallingford may just get that opportunity.  Paul Bankowski, chairman, said Saturday that if the stars are in alignment we just might be able to pull this off. Wednesday’s driving rain, wind and hail forced the Church to cancel the night’s event and unseasonably cold temperatures Thursday, Friday and Saturday just kept the people away.  When the Rainbow Amusements Company owner mentioned that he had a free weekend the following week for most of the rides and asked if the church wanted to open again the wheels were set into motion.  Paul approached his committee members with the idea and they all felt that we could attempt a scaled back version the following Friday and Saturday nights May 1st and 2nd.

We will be losing the Ferris wheel and the salt and pepper rides due to another engagement, but the rest will stay in place for another week. The menu will be limited to cheesesteak, fried dough, hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and limited desserts such as ice cream bars and cannoli.  We will try to license the plant and basket booth, 50/50 raffle and the wine and beer, but may not be able to do so in the short timeframe.  Of course the Grand Raffle and Tea Cup raffle cannot be held over due to state regulations; they must be drawn on the date and time stated on the original permit issued back in February.  The committee has already begun seeking volunteers to man the various booths and filing out the necessary permit applications, in the hopes of pulling off an event that usually takes months of planning in just one short week.  Paul said “I have the best committee there is, I have faith that we can do this.”

Hopefully everything falls into place and the carnival gets to extend their stay and get some more visitors this week!

Church of the Resurrection Carnival returns

Everybody loves it when the carnival comes to town!

Once again, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival April 22nd through the 25th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. The weather forecast for the four day event is for good weather on Wednesday, morning showers on Thursday, nice again on Friday, and occasional showers for Saturday, but the weather should not have any effect on the fun, games, rides and great food that always accompanies this much anticipated event.

The venue will open nightly at 6pm and features a midway with more things to do than you can shake a stick at! Some of the fun to be had includes games of skill, chance and just plain ol’ luck (NOTE: must be 18 years or older to play games of chance), rides for young and old including a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and a Fun House.

Let's take a walk through the Fun House!

The first two days are usually themed as Italian Night on Wednesday, and Polish Night on Thursday, complete with music. Some of the ethnic treats that will be offered are:

Italian Night

  • Porchetta
  • Sausage & Peppers
  • Meatballs
  • Homestyle Cannoli
  • Pasta Fagioli
  • Sfogliatelle

Polish Night

  • Stuffed Cabbage
  • Kielbasa & Kraut

Other foods available will include clam chowder, hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries, fried dough, eggplant parmesan, Philly cheeseteaks, and clams on the half shell. There will be plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth, too, with delights such as dilly bars, ice cream sandwiches, strawberry shortcake and carrot cake to be had. And of course, the obligatory refreshments will also be available in the form of coffee, tea, soda, water, beer, lemonade and hot chocolate.

As for entertainment, the a capella group Fermata the Blue from CCSU will perform at 7pm and 8pm on Wednesday night, and there will be karaoke and music by DJ Next Generation on Friday night. Last but not least, there will be raffles and plenty of games and rides for kids of all ages, with a $20 wristband for rides available each night.

Church of the Resurrection, 115 Pond Hill Rd, Wallingford CT 06492

There’s always something to do at this fun-filled extravaganza; we’ve gone every year and we never fail to have a great time and we NEVER leave hungry! So if you’re looking for something to do April 22nd – 25th, look no further than the Church of the Resurrection Carnival. There’s plenty of free parking and admission is free too, so come on down!

Yes, we had fun last year! I won that gorilla with 3 darts!
