Many summer events are returning to Beaver County for 2022, and one up in the northwest corner of the county begins its festivities this week.
The New Galilee Carnival is returning to the borough for the first time since 2019, and it will run from Wednesday, June 29 to Saturday, July 2. The mayor of New Galilee, Mark Benes, joined Matt Drzik on the June 28 edition of A.M. Beaver County to preview the four days of fun for residents and visitors alike.
Benes announced that the carnival will be headquartered in and behind the community center in New Galilee, located on the corner of Centennial Avenue and Fairlane Boulevard opposite the walking track. The walking track itself will be used for parking, with access to the lot at the Route 168 entrance.
The carnival will kick off with a parade at 6:00 PM on June 29, with a Car Cruise in conjunction that will run until 9:00 PM. There will be live music each night, along with 25¢ bingo in the community hall and a nightly 50/50 drawing. The carnival will run from 6:00 PM until 11:00 PM nightly with the exception of Saturday, when the gates will be open from 4:00 PM until midnight and feature a skydiver 50/50 and an ice cream eating contest.
