For the first time in 30 years, Saint Aloysius Church in Pottstown, is holding a community carnival.
The carnival will be held June 26 to 30 on the grounds of the former Saint Pius X High School at 844 N. Keim St.
The event will feature amusement rides provided by Houghton Enterprises, Inc., a "Kiddie Corner" of games and crafts for the younger children, homemade food items, including ethnic dishes, and other entertainment.
Father Joseph Maloney, pastor of Saint Aloysius, hopes that it will serve as both a much-need fundraiser for St. Aloysius parish and school and as a wonderful chance for families in the community to come together for fun and relaxation at the start of summer.
Advanced-sale tickets are $15, a 25% discount, and can be purchased by contacting the parish office at 610-326-5877. These vouchers can be exchanged on any of the five days for a wrist band good for all rides that day. Wrist bands may be purchased at the carnival for $20.
The carnival will be open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 30.
