This is a very special community event because parishioners and school families volunteer their weekend to put the carnival together. People attend not only from Miami Shores, but also from other schools and other areas in Miami. The funds raised in the carnival go towards a school and parish fund used to maintain and refurbish the St. Rose of Lima facilities. Community spirit is visible everywhere, booth sponsorship banners are placed all over the carnival, bazaar with all kinds of great stuff for sale, volunteers preparing food and manning booths with different games, 50/50 raffle, wine and beer tent, silent auction with items donated by families and local businesses, picnic area, and not to forget great carnival rides like The Ring of Fire, The Orbit and The Thunder Bolt.
I am happy to announce, or should I say.... confess, that I shared fried dough with my 2-year old today and it was delicious! Ride-tickets and bracelets can be purchased in advance or at the carnival. If you are in the area....don't miss the fun! St. Rose of Lima is located at 415 NE 105th Street in Miami Shores.
To the left you can see The principal and the vice-principal of St. Rose of Lima (Sister Nancy Kindelan and Mrs. Zigmont) with food court volunteers. To the right, the RICK & INES sponsored ice-cream booth.
I love to watch the Merry-go-round and the funny faces some make.
