St Joseph's Carnival in Keyport Running Through Sunday

 The annual St Joseph's Parish Carnival began on Wedneday and runs through Sunday 30 May 2010. The gates open tonight at 6 pm, with the festivities running through 11:30 pm. Fireworks begin about 9:45 pm. Saturday and Sunday the carnival opens its gates at 4 pm and closes them on Saturday at 11:30 pm and Sunday at 10:30 pm.

There will be lots of food -- lobster bisque, clams, mussels, etc. There are also lots of rides and games. Entrance is a dollar. Rides and games are extra. (Rides cost x number of tickets at 50 cents a ticket.)

The Super 50-50 drawing will be held on Sunday evening. 50-50 tickets are $5 each.

The carnival is located in a field behind the church along Broadway, between Geran and Gerard Streets. (see map) There is some limited parking in the church lot.Valet parking is also available.

I just realized that St Joe's has a new website. Looks very nice. Their link to the carnival isn't very informative, though. More of a request for volunteers. Hope the above is helpful.
