What’s your favorite part of the Orange Firemen’s Carnival? For some it’s the rides, others live for the food. Some can’t resist the games, and everyone gathers in a clearing for the fireworks.
But, seriously, who wouldn’t want to win one of the raffle prizes?
Each year the volunteers somehow manage to gather the most awesome prizes you’ll ever see in one place. This year there are 13.
Last summer as I got my feet wet at the announcers post with my dear friend Bob “The Voice of the Firemen’s Carnival” Crocco, I couldn’t help but notice just how many people make a bee-line for the Raffle Tent to get their $5 ticket before they do anything else.
I remember how badly I wanted the iPad last year, but this year, being unemployed, the $200 Stop & Shop gift certificate is looking mighty good.
Buying raffle tickets is easy, you may see any Orange Volunteer Firefighter, go to Town Hall, firehouse or Knight’s and take a chance at winning one of these terrific prizes.
