KENDALL – The Kendall Firemen’s Carnival, an annual summer tradition in Kendall since the 1940s, is moving this year’s event up two weeks due to the schedule for the company that provides the rides/midway.

The carnival is typically three days from Thursday through Saturday, the first or second week of July. This year it will be June 20-22.

The big parade also is typically on Friday. The parade this year will be on a Thursday. (Kendall’s commencement program is that Friday, June 21.)

About 50 volunteers help the Kendall Fire Department keep the annual carnival going. Many other fire departments in Western New York have ceased doing carnivals.

The Kendall carnival helps the fire department pay for the ambulance, and building maintenance, utilities and upkeep.
