First off, the carnival is coming back to town! The annual Boys and Girls Club sponsored Coleman Bros. Carnival will be back on May 12th through May 22nd. Always a huge hit downtown on the river, it will open at 6pm Monday through Friday, and 2pm Saturday and Sunday.
The carnival includes classic rides like the merry-go-round and Ferris wheel as well as newer attractions like a slide, swings, the Sizzler, Tilt-a-Whirl, and Mardi-Gras themed funhouse. And of course, there’s plenty of food, including fried dough, pizza, and cotton candy. A portion of the proceeds go to support our Boys & Girls Clubs in Shelton and Ansonia.
Admission & Prices as posted on the Boys & Girls Club website are as follows:
"$2 admission fee to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley

Every day is wristband day!”
So be sure to head down to Veteran’s Park at 83 Canal Street East, in Shelton, CT to start your summer season off right! I know I’ll be back to make sure their fried dough is on point as usual.
Next up will be Food Trucks on the River. The food trucks will be back at Veteran’s Park on Saturday, June 18, 2022 from 11am to 6pm.
Join 25+ CT food trucks for the Valley’s largest food truck event with live music, children’s activities, beer garden, cooking demos and workshops and artisan vendors.
