Launch that frog! Firemen's carnival celebrates summer with games, rides (SLIDESHOW)

The annual Ridgefield Volunteer Fire Department's carnival has been a popular destination the past two nights at East Ridge Middle School.

Residents have hopped on The Avalanche, The Pirate Ship, Dizzy Dragons, Scat and, Ferris wheel over the first two nights — with entertainment provided by Cheshire-based Tufano Amusements.

Night three tonight, Friday, June 28 — might draw the biggest crowd of all though, as the annual summer celebration peaks with a fireworks show at 9:15. Rain date for the fireworks is Saturday, June 29, at the same time.
