KENILWORTH, NJ - The annual Kenilworth Fire Department Carnival officially kicked off Monday night. There was a great turnout of residents and visitors from different towns to come out and participate in the fun.

The Carnival features rides for both children and adults, games, food, music, a beer garden, and safe family-friendly fun. Pay-One-Price-Ride-All-Night wristband nights are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. There is a Money Wheel daily, and also a Super 50/50 grand prize drawing on Saturday night, which has amounted to over $10,000 in past years.

Kenilworth Mayor Anthony Deluca says, "the Carnival is one of Kenilworth's biggest events and our official end to summer. The Carnival has been the place for young and old alike. Over the years, many former residents make the trip to stop in for a zeppole and catch up. Don't forget the Super 50/50!"

The Carnival runs now until August 17, and the hours are Monday thru Friday 6:30 – 10:30 p.m., and Saturday 5:30 – 11 p.m.  Admission is free.  St. Theresa’s School is located at 540 Washington Ave., Kenilworth, NJ.
