Everybody loves it when the carnival comes to town!
Once again, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival April 23rd through the 26th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. The weather forecast for the four day event is for good weather on Wednesday and Thursday and rain for Friday and Saturday, but that should not have any effect on the fun, games, rides and great food that always accompanies this much anticipated event. And we all know how fast the weather can change in New England!
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, merry-go-round and roller coaster, and a Fun House.
The first two days are usually themed as Italian Night on Wednesday, and Polish Night on Thursday. Some of the ethnic treats that will be offered are:
- Sausage & Peppers
- Homestyle Cannoli
- Pasta Fagioli
- Quandi (Angel Wings)
- 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.
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 23rd – 26th, look no further than the Church of the Resurrection Carnival. There’s plenty of parking and admission is free, so come on down!
