The 52nd annual carnival begins tonight at St. Michael's Church on the Levittown Parkway in Tullytown. They have some new rides this year and also are having a petting zoo for the youngsters. It starts at 6pm every night. The fair helps to raise money for the church and help with the catholic school's tuition costs, though I don't know if a lot of people know that. I think most just look at is as a big community event that a lot of people look forward to. They were trying to get permission to shoot fireworks there as well (I believe after the fair was done) but Tullytown vetoed it.
