Stafford Carnival grounds flooded, no fun tonight

posted by Howard B. Owens in weather, Stafford, Stafford Carnival.

Organizers of the Stafford Carnival have canceled festivities for tonight. Just about everything -- including the beer tent -- is flooded.

Jamie Call said everything will be ready to go by tomorrow, however.

Naw, new lake was off Wortendyke Road.
Oops!! Sorry!! That was Nu Lake.
Yeah, I don't even remember a Stafford Carnival that didn't have a 'slip-n-slide'!
That was half the fun. That, and waiting all night to find out you DIDN'T win the car.

In my younger days, I remember drinking beer under the canvas ankle deep in mud, trying to stay on the hay to stay dry. One carnival about twenty five years ago, it was so cold that we all had to bundle up in our Winter's clothing. I may have slowed us down, but it did not stop us. And yes I remember in 2008 going home on Sunday's Jamboree thinking I didn't stand a chance in Hell to win the car, only to receive a call that night that my ticket was chosen; a one in a million shot.

I'll be waiting for Monday's Police Blotter to read about all the DWI's!
Unless of course people will heed the warnings "DONT DRINK AND DRIVE"

There's always those who believe they're not drunk but most are smart enough to come with a DD now. If not we will find them a ride home if needed. The goal is for a safe and fun weekend for the attendees while helping with the operating budget to ensure great fire/ems service to the town of Stafford and mutual aid throughout the county. So come join the fun and mud this weekend!
