Carnival O’ Pizza 2010

There are few memories from childhood that are that vivid. Few that illicit such a visceral and wistful remembrance. Few memories that you can almost smell, even decades later. And when you were growing up and you began to doubt the existence of magic, there was never a question that magic lived within the flimsy, postered walls of the carnival.

Come one, come all! The 5th annual Carnival O’ Pizza is coming to town, Saturday, November 20th from noon to 7 PM. We will have games galore, dashing DJs, contests to confound, radical raffles, minstrely music, hip-hop for half-pints, prizes, and pizza, pizza, PIZZA! And so much more.
