The 100th anniversary Dewey Fire Company Carnival will be held in Hellertown’s Dimmick Park and at the fire company next door from Tuesday, July 14 to Sunday, July 19, 2015.

In addition to rides, games and food, this year’s carnival will feature a number of special events, such as a motorcycle festival (“Bikefest”) featuring an appearance by reality TV star Paul Teutel Sr. of Orange County Choppers, a Color Run, and the Dewey Fire Co. Centennial Carnival Celebration Cruise (a classic car show/cruise).

A different concert is planned for each day of the carnival, although some of the acts have yet to be named.fireworks-227383_1280
