WAKEFIELD — It’s that time of year again.

The annual Wakefield Independence Day Committee April vacation carnival will be open this year at the Galvin Middle School starting on Tuesday, April 17, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and continuing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., and on Saturday, April 21, from noon to 10 p.m.

Everyone’s favorite rides will be there and on the menu are your usual carnival basics, including hot dogs, sausages, fried dough and cotton candy. And don’t forget the midway games!

The carnival held during April school vacation is a major source of revenue for the Wakefield Independence Day Committee. The money is used to fund each year’s Fourth of July parade.

Starting in 2018, individual tickets and wristbands are available for cash as well as credit and debit cards. Wristbands are available to purchase for $25 for unlimited rides during the noted 4 hour shifts, 5 hours on Saturday.

Please note, rides are anywhere from 2 to 6 tickets per ride, per person. If your child has a wristband and you need to go on the rides with them, you will also need a wristband.

Wrist band times:

• Tuesday 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

• Wednesday 2 to 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

• Thursday 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

• Friday 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

• Saturday 12 noon to 5 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

There are no crossovers with times! Please be aware when purchasing at the ticket booth.

Volunteers will be ready to answer any questions at the ticket booths as well.
