The Orange Volunteer Firemen’s Carnival is the department’s most important fundraiser of the year. The popular event at the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road is open today from 3 p.m. to midnight. If it’s raining, come for the food! This year, the women’s auxiliary is offering Pie, pie a la mode, ice cream floats, coffee and iced coffee. Don’t miss their section under the main food tent (pavilion)
Amusement ride activities are dependent upon the weather of course. (Forecasters say the rain should clear up by 6 p.m – yet at 12:21 it looks like the sun is already breaking through – but a weather alert was just posted for bad weather until 2:15 p.m.)
Advance ride wristbands can be used during the Saturday Matinee from 12 – 5 p.m. and Saturday Evening from 5 p.m. to midnight.***
You may buy a ride wristband at the carnival for $28, that is good during the Saturday Matinee from 12-5 p.m.***
***due to the delayed opening this may have changed
Don’t forget about the FREE RAFFLE for Children during the Matinee. Children 12 and younger can register at the main raffle booth to win free prizes. You must be present to win!
Stay late for the SPECTACULAR FIREWORKS DISPLAY at 10:30 p.m.
Buy a Raffle Ticket or two (or more) and take a chance on the 50/50 Raffle a few times a day. (The very first 50/50 take home prize was $100! Not bad for a $2 investment)
