Rides, games, funnel cakes, cotton candy and good old carnival fun. These memories all encompass the good times I have had at St Francis’s annual summer carnival The Festival of the Sea. As a child and even in my late teens this was something I looked forward to each year. Now I get to take my kids back to share in some of the fun through their eyes.
Since 1975 the LBI community and its visitors have been enjoying this annual celebration put on by the St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Brant Beach, NJ. There is always a delicious spread of carnival foods, games, raffles, rides, prizes and more. There is something for all ages to create a night of real fun! While rides and games are available for cost entrance to this event is free and shuttle services are often provided. You can enjoy more than just one night of fun as this year’s carnival takes place from August 9-13th and is open nightly from 6:00pm to 10:00pm weather permitting. What says summer more then a fun night at a carnival!
