Oct 18 @ 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm

RotaryFest '19 Carnival

CHAMBERSBURG — Rotary Club of Chambersburg will host the 2nd annual RotaryFest ’19 Carnival Oct. 18-19 in Chambersburg. The event will feature rides and games by Snyder’s Amusements of Greencastle, as well as other entertainment. “We have enhanced the carnival this year by adding a scavenger hunt, hula hoop contest and a balloon animal artist making art on Saturday afternoon,” said Heather Kohler, chair of the Rotary Club of Chambersburg fundraising committee. “It’s something on Saturday that is nice for the whole family. They can enjoy the crafts and things at the downtown Chambersburg AppleFest and the kids can come burn off some energy at the carnival.”

The 2nd annual RotaryFest ’19 Carnival will be held Friday, Oct. 18 and Saturday, Oct. 19 in the county parking lot at the corner of West King and Hood streets. Hours are 4 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday. Admission to the carnival is free. Rides tickets are $1 each.

“Families who attend should expect a good time,” Kohler said. “It’s a low-cost fun time before the winter doldrums set in.”

This is the club’s primary fundraiser. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Rotary Youth Programs Initiatives, which include the Youth Exchange Student, CASHS Interact Club, Third Grade Dictionary Project, Kindergarten Read Across America Program, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, sponsorship of CASHS girls’ soccer and boys’ football banquets and a scholarship to a graduating CASHS senior. Last year’s carnival raised more than $18,000 for the youth initiatives.

RotaryFest ’19 is sponsored by DiLoreto, Cosentino, Bolinger Attorneys at Law; Edward Jones Investments; Menno Haven; The Butcher Shoppe; Richards Orthopaedic Center; F&M Trust; Creative Minds Learning & Development Centers; and WellSpan Health.
