The 2021 carnival was a huge success!
It’s important that we acknowledge how polite everyone was this year, especially the youth. So many young men and women were saying please and thank you while kids and adults alike continuously thanked us for our service.
Everyone was so understanding as we dealt with record breaking crowds each and every night. We even had to delay the fireworks for about 30 minutes because so many people were still in line for rides! Our parade had over 60 participants and the weather was awesome all week.
As popular as this event is, it takes a lot of work, manpower and long hours to make it happen. Many of your firefighters stayed until after midnight each night only to get up on the morning to go to work and comeback to do it all over again the next night. That’s why you may have noticed firefighters from different departments helping out. We rely heavily on our brothers and sisters from neighboring departments on a regular basis for emergency calls and they had our back for the carnival as well.
A special shout out goes to the Patterson and Patterson Heights fire departments, and the city of Beaver Falls fire department for sending members to help supplement our staff.
The winner of our annual entertainment system raffle was Karen Blum of Chippewa! Congratulations, Karen!
Thank you all for helping make this a great community event!
