RIIDGEFIELD — The annual volunteer fire department’s carnival was packed Thursday evening as hundreds of people of all ages came out to East Ridge Middle School to enjoy food from the many food trucks, go on dozens of rides and spend time with family and friends.

While the carnival is an annual event in town, this year marks the fire department’s 125th anniversary.

Aside from the carnival, which will run through Saturday evening on the school field, there will also be a parade and fireworks show.

The carnival, which is free to attend, runs from 6 to 10 p.m. through Saturday.

The Fireman’s Parade will step off at 7 p.m. Friday on Main Street, going toward Town Hall, then taking a left on Market Street and a right on East Ridge Road until ending up at East Ridge Middle School — at the carnival.

On Saturday, there will also be a fireworks show at dusk. Fireworks will be visible from anywhere near the carnival grounds.
