BAYONNE, NJ — Marist High School’s faculty, students, staff and parents invite you to experience the sights, sounds, smells and thrills of an old-time summer carnival while also helping a good cause.

The school community will host the Marist Family Carnival from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5 on the field behind the educational institution, and it is being packed with as many activities as possible for attendees’ enjoyment.

The event will feature adult rides, including the Zipper and Yo-Yo, and more than 10 children’s rides. Many carnival games and activities, including a dunk tank, will also be available at additional cost.

The Marist Parent’s Association will be providing food for purchase in the school cafeteria, and a beer garden will be accessible to anyone who is of age.

On opening night, Thursday, June 2, New Jersey 101.5, WKXW, will be broadcasting from the carnival from 6 to 8 p.m. and offering games and giveaways to carnival goers.

“People should come to the carnival because we offer something for everyone and it is a great way to kick off the summer,” said Matt Puracchio, Marist communications officer. “Our school is a family and we want to share that atmosphere with the community.”

But people should also attend because they know the proceeds will be well utilized.

“The money raised through the carnival will be used by Marist High School to keep our school affordable for all students, and to supply them with the resources and opportunities to further their educational experience,” said Tiffany McQueary, the school’s chief advancement officer.

The carnival will run from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, June 2 through Saturday, June 4, and from 1 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 5.

Tickets will be available at the gate and are $1.25 for one, $30 for 26, and $55 for 60.

A $30 wristband will be available for purchase on opening night, June 2, and can be used for unlimited access to all carnival rides for that evening only.

Marist is located at 1241 Kennedy Blvd. Parking will be available at the school until the lot is full.
