Traditional Carnival Attracts Hundreds
The Bridgewater Township Library hosts its annual summer carnival.
The Bridgewater Township Library held its annual end-of-summer carnival Thursday, hosting lots of games and handing out prizes to participating kids.
According to Marna Elliott, library director, they usually expect about 300 to 600 people at the carnival, with kids as old as fourth grade usually in attendance.
Working the games, Elliott said, were teen volunteers, who worked for days to prepare for the program.
The carnival is also done in conjunction with the summer reading program, which is open until Sept. 8.
Elliott said she is pleased by the opportunities at the carnival, particularly because it is a traditional one without any electronics, and includes a bean bag toss, bowling, fishing and golf, among other games.
"People look forward to coming to this," she said. "The games are old traditional carnival ones."
