Lions Bring the Carnival Back to Holliston

by Paul Saulnier
July 2, 2018

The Lions know what Hollistonians want to do right before the Fourth of July:  a carnival.

The concession stand did a record business this year as the carnival opened in the midst of a heat wave.

The rides kept the kids cool and the arcades kept the adults separated from their cash.

Above, Lion Steve Hedrick, left, and carnival GM Dan Tibbetts were pleased with the attendance so far (Friday evening).

Above, left to right in back, Ann and Ed Jeye and their daughters Ava and Amanda and friends did not mind the heat.

Ed "the Lion Hearted" Daniels, as current president of the Lions ran this year's event with a little help from his friends in the "Pride", below.

The lions donate more than $40,000 per year to charities and other worthy causes.

Above, left to right, Abby, Sarah and Henry get ready to ride the Ferris wheel.

Clearance sale? Hardly. Serafina Underwood of Fitchburg, won all these stuffed animals at the arcade either with machine guns ,the water guns or the sheet ball. She needed help carrying them all to their car as they were off to find another carnival to apply her obvious marksmanship skills.

Connor wasn't afraid of the 30 foot drop as he and his Mom, Melissa, enjoy the short slide down.

Keeping everyone safe on Friday was Corporal Seay of the Holliston Auxiliary Force. Seay has been a member for six years and could not say enough good things about the force and the support it gets from the community.
