Amity Fire Company Carnival Celebrates 12th Year

The 12th annual Amity Fire Company Carnival is underway in Douglassville. As a fundraiser for the fire company, the carnival features exciting rides, delicious food, and fun games for the whole family.

To get the inside scoop on the carnival we spoke with carnival chairman and Captain of the Amity Fire Company, Justin Kisch. “We are very excited for our 12th year, this year Tons of Fun Shows brought out several new rides for the community to experience .”

The big new attraction this year is the 82 foot gondola Ferris Wheel dubbed “Big Bertha”. Making its debut at the Amity Fire Carnival, Tons of Fun Shows recently purchased the Ferris Wheel from a company in Germany. From the top of the Ferris Wheel riders get a scenic view of the county, including a view of the Pagoda on Mount Penn.

In addition to the rides, Kisch says the Amity Fire Company volunteers are selling T-shirts, raffle tickets, hosting games like ring toss, and managing the food stand. New menu items this year include soft pretzels with Cheese, pulled pork sandwiches, and a sausage sandwich combo.
