SPENCERPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — The Spencerport Firemen’s Carnival kicks off Wednesday and runs through Sunday as the event returns for the first time since 2019.

The carnival, canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, will take place at Spencerport Firemen’s Field off North Union Street from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. from Wednesday through Friday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday.

The long-running carnival features rides, games, food, live entertainment, and more. The “Pay One Price” unlimited ride specials are available each day and cost $20 on Wednesday and $25 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

For entertainment Wednesday, there will be a Youth Parade at 7 p.m. and live music by No Big Deal at 6 pm. in the carnival tent. On Thursday there will be a Grand Fireman’s Parade at 7 p.m. with a performance by BB Dang in the carnival tent at 8:30 p.m.

Friday will feature 7th Heavin in the Carnival Tent at 8:30 p.m. and Saturday will feature two concerts; Begging Angels at 5 p.m. and Tryst at 9 p.m.

Many of the attendants of the carnival were happy to see it return.

“Just having dinner and letting my kids ride some rides and let them have fun,” said carnival guest Larry Vanelli.

“My grandson’s here from Arizona. All the way from Arizona, he had to come to the Spencerport Carnival,” said Charlene Ciarkowski.

The carnival is a fundraiser for the all-volunteer fire department and, since the Spencerport Volunteer Fireman’s Association had limited money coming in the last two years, organizers are happy to see the carnival returned.

“I definitely think we should help and give back to our community,” said Michelle Miller.

“We already donated to the fire department just a little while ago,” said Marlene O’Connell.

“Like many non-profits and fire departments across Monroe County, we had to adjust,” said Aaron Baker of the Spencerport Volunteer Fireman’s Association. “This, for us, is a huge deal and it’s a big deal for the community as well.”
