Stafford Township, NJ — Every year in mid-July, St. Mary’s Parish Center in Manahawkin is home to six nights of family fun, and this year’s “Nights of Summer” Carnival is scheduled for Tuesday, July 16, through Sunday, July 21, from 6 to 10:30 each night.

Everybody can be a kid, including Msgr. Ken Tuzeneu, during this festive and safe event. Of course, there will be rides and games galore, as well as food, entertainment and raffles for all. The carnival’s location again will be McKinley Avenue and Bishop Lane.

One-day armbands for $20 per person and week-long mega armbands for $75 per person (nominal surcharges apply) can be purchased online at campys.com.tickets until Monday, July 15, before the price at the gate changes to $30 and $85 per person, respectively. Armbands permit individuals unlimited access to rides during the carnival’s operating hours. Ride height restrictions apply, but all riders must be at least 3 feet tall.

A Super 50/50 drawing will be held Sunday, July 21; the winner need not be present. But hourly 50/50s will occur each night, and winners must be present for those. All raffle purchasers must be 18 years old or older to enter.

Music and entertainment will be provided by: David Mulvihill and Mike Mellett (Tuesday), Country Line Dancing with Bark Entertainment (Wednesday), the Lenny Davis Band (Thursday), Reflections Station (Friday), Mid-Life Crisis with Jack Mac and Lady Di (Saturday) and The Kootz (Sunday).
