If you've passed by the grounds of the old Kennedy-Kenrick High School at Arch Street and East Johnson Highway in the past few days, you've seen the folks getting the midway ready for Norristown's Spring Carnival and now opening night is finally here. The carnival kicks off tonight at 6 p.m.
Come out and enjoy the food, the rides, the games and even a dunk tank with Norristown luminaries volunteering as victims! Here's the schedule:
- Wednesday 6-10 p.m.
- Thursday 6-10 p.m.
- Friday 6-10 p.m.
- Saturday 2-10 p.m.
There's a "Family Night Special" on Thursday from 7-10 p.m. and on Saturday from 2-5 p.m. – $20 will get you unlimited rides.
"The goal of the carnival is to provide fun activities for children to celebrate Norristown’s 200 years, and raise money for the upcoming bicentennial events from May to September," Councilwoman Cathy Lawrence told The Times Herald. "This event and the 2011 dinner-dance are the two main fundraising events for the Bicentennial activities.”
