Hey guys. We admire what you do for this town, but please give up on this carnival thing. Why don't you do what Transfiguration does and use the park for a 3 day event. Keep all the money you make instead of giving it away to those Carney urchins.

The carnival has always been the low spot of the summer, why break tradition.

How can this be advertised as a carnival,, There is nothing for the kids,,except games that are over-priced. I rather send my donation to the firemen then go there again. Please whoever is in charge of this event from the dept, they need to change something.

Maybe they can contract with another carnival, like the one Finleyville or Belle Vernon uses.

Judge our town on a carnival? That says something about your education level. This town is doing fine. Don't do us any favors. Stay in the desert! God has blessed this area!

With my response to james yancec over with lol, I do have to agree with most of the comments here.I have not actually attended the carnivalbut I will say it definately looks like the lamest carnival I have seen in my 40 years. Please firemen try to scout out a new orginaization.

When they hold an event I'm interested in, I'll support them. But I'm not going to go down and waste my hard-earned money on a bunch of crappy rides for some out of town circus/carney freaks. Why doesn't the VFD show a little ingenuity and see what OTHER VFD's from around the country are doing for fundraisers? It's not that hard to find out about other VFD's activities ever since Al Gore invented the "internets."

The problem is that the city is stupid from the top down....we have a retarded mayor (screw you if you can't handle the word retarted), a retarded council, a retarded police department, a retarded chamber of commerce, and now to add to the list, a retarded fire department (just the "chiefs", not the grunts).

So when you see a carnival like the one that was just here, it is just an example of the people that plan it. I'm sure kepics was down there every night with his "Mayor" hat on.

agreed
needs a facelift

the carnival has needed a facelift for years. it all depends on who is running it. years ago it was nice with lots of rides, games, food, etc. the parade was nice, too. there were also firemen contests and bands, etc. on the aquatorium. one year, they even had fireworks during the carnival. they need a good chairperson to take it back to how they USED to have it back in the 1980s! the town and area comminities will come if it is nice! i took my kids 3 years ago because i wanted to support it - and we left after 15 minutes because there was nothing there! the past couple of years, we did not even bother after driving by and seeing the same shabby mess. A good chairperson with a good committee who works with the community to get things going is what will do the trick! it has nothing to do with the mayor, council, or police department! I wish the firemen well - but the carnival has been terrible for many years!

Retarded is when people with no intelligence spout off and insult people they don't know while they sit on their lazy ass and do nothing. At the same time they continue to live in an area they claim not to like. My advice to the half wit complainers, lead follow or get the hell out of our town because you are not wanted.
