St. Ann Catholic Church is bringing back its 24th annual Carnival to Bristol Borough for a long week full of Italian fun. Each night from Monday, Aug. 19 to Saturday, Aug. 24, people of any background are invited to enjoy rides and celebrate tradition.

Casey Waldron, who works on the festival’s sponsorship committee, is a “Bristol Borough girl.” She believes there’s quite nothing like this summer fair.

“It’s such a community building event,” Waldron said. “It’s really the event of the summer here, not only in our town Bristol Borough, but all the surrounding counties. It just brings so many people together.”

Waldron also said she will be on the front lines, serving “delicious, homemade Italian food.” Everything is made on location, including the pizza fritte.

“You can smell it from miles away.”

Waldron also gave credit to Council President Ralph DiGuiseppe, along with other churches in the area like St. Mark.

“It takes you back into time. It’s that allure of the small town and you’re seeing the different churches come together and different people come together.”

The festivities begin a 6 p.m. each night at 357 Dorrance St. and all access wristbands are $16.
