Kiwanis Club carnival brings Franklin Square families fun


The Kiwanis Club of Franklin Square hosted its first-ever carnival last weekend.

Residents were welcome to take a ride on familiar favorites like the zipper, a fun house and the carousel during the carnival. Attendees had a variety of carnival games to test their skills at over the weekend. Staple snacks such as zeppoles, fried oreos and hot pretzels were available for purchase during the event.

Vendors sold handcrafted items such as bracelets that people could parse through to choose from. The family friendly event welcomed many from Thursday through Sunday.

Gregg Cajuste, liutenant governor of the Kiwanis Club, said the event was an opportunity for the organization to give back to the community.

The event took months to prepare and was hosted on Holzheimer Street in Franklin Square.
