Rides, slides, and fireworks! It’s all about family fun at the Patterson Volunteer Fire Department’s annual carnival. There will be a big variety of rides including a large carousel, Hurricane Tornado, and Dragon Wagon, as well as bumper cars and game booths to delight all ages. A wheel of fortune, 50/50 raffle, assorted food trucks, and an ice cream vendor round out the choices. Also available will be a selection of tasty offerings from the fire department’s own pavilion kitchen including hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage-and-pepper wedges, and everyone’s favorite fried dough and fried Oreos.
