RIDGWAY FIREMEN'S CARNIVAL CANCELED!!

After much discussion and consideration, The Ridgway Fire Department has deemed it necessary to cancel the 2020 Carnival due to COVID-19. The Carnival which would have been our 87th was scheduled for early July. When looking at Governor Wolfs plan for re-opening the state, we feel the risk of having the carnival outweighed the benefit. The safety of those that work at the carnival and those who attend is paramount so that far out-weighs the revenue we would generate. It is our hope to come up with some other activities a little later in the year that might provide the opportunity to come and enjoy the Fire Department food, but only time will tell. Our Gun Bash is still scheduled for October and we hope that things will have stabilized by that time. We trust you will understand our decision. We get tremendous support from our community and we are truly grateful for that


Due to COVID, THE RIDGWAY FIRE DEPT. HAS CANCELED BINGO TILL FURTHER NOTICE!
