Carvinal Coming to Westwood

The annual Ambulance Corps carnival starts Tuesday in Westwood Plaza.

The Westwood Ambulance Corps is holding their annual carnival in starting Tuesday.

The carnival will feature a variety of rides, games, food and the dunk tank — who will be in it remains to be seen — from Tuesday until Saturday, according to Florence Berg of the Westwood Ambulance Corps.

This year will be the corps' 21st carnival. The event is a major fundraiser for the volunteer group. The annual tradition started to raise money for a new ambulance, according to Berg. Today, the carnival draws in almost 30 percent of their annual operating income.

Admission to the carnival is free. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be wristband nights, during which a $25 wristband covers the cost of everything inside.

Westwood Councilman John Sciara said the event is a fun way for residents to support local volunteers.

"Make sure you get out there," Sciara said. "Bring the kids and support the Ambulance Corps."
