Coleman Bros. Carnival returns to Shelton

SHELTON — Coleman Bros. is bringing its spring carnival back to Shelton on May 12, and proceeds from the event will help support the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley.

The carnival runs from May 12 to 22 at Veteran’s Park, 83 Canal St. East, and will feature classic carnival rides like the merry-go-round and the Ferris Wheel as well as a slide, swings, the Sizzler, Tilt-a-Whirl, and Mardi-Gras-themed funhouse.

Food is available for purchase throughout the carnival, with such favorites as fried dough, pizza, and cotton candy. Games of chance will thrill youngsters with the chance to take home a prize.

The carnival opens at 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $2, and ride tickets cost $1.50 each. People can purchase 20 tickets for $25 or 50 tickets for $60. Wristbands cost $30 Monday through Friday and $35 on Saturday and Sunday — every day is wristband day.
