I always despised going back to school. Summer has been and always will be my favorite season. I don't like being cooped inside all day while the beautiful day teases me through the window. One thing I could always look forward to and day dream about would be the fall community carnivals that would happen, either put on by local towns or by my school. Well, the Town of Wappinger is holding an extra special event that's making me day dream here at my desk at the radio station!

Second Annual Town of Wappinger Carni"fall"

I like the little play on words there. Very good.

After a successful first year filled with fun attractions and smiling faces, the Town of Wappinger brings back their Carni"fall" for Community Day! Brexel-Schlathaus Park in the Myers Corners hamlet is once again the venue for the four day event happening Columbus Day weekend (October 7-10th).

The town is sparing no expense on the attractions, for they are partnering with McDaniels Borthers Shows to offer carnival rides throughout the weekend. The Community Day celebrations will include live music, food trucks, vendors and games and activities for everyone of all ages.

On Friday night, they will be holding a large bonfire at Schlathaus for residents to enjoy. The next day, Saturday, around 2pm, they will kick off their Community Day Parade marching down Myers Corners Road toward the park. Don't forget about the fire works which are set to go off Sunday night. Throughout the weekend, the Town encourages folks to stop by Meadowbrook Farms for apple picking, as well!
