Botsford Fire Rescue and Merenna Amusements think it’s time to bring smiles to all kids and adults in Newtown. Carnivals rides, games and food will once again be offered in the main parking lot at Newtown High School, 12 Berkshire Road, during the annual Spring Carnival. This year’s event will run from Thursday, April 18, until Saturday, April 20. Hours are 6 to 10 pm on Thursday and Friday, and 2 to 10 pm on Saturday. Special this year will be the offer for Newtown children up to age 12, who will be given free rides on Saturday between 2 and 5 pm, courtesy of the amusement company and Botsford Fire. Discount tickets and wristbands will also be available all three days of the carnival.
