The carnival people arrived in town yesterday and started setting up for the central Catholic Church’s Patron Saint (San Rafael) Fiesta which, with donated food and entertainment on a stage in church parking lot, plus daily Bingo will all raise a little bit of money for the church. And the cheap carnival rides? Well I can’t see how anyone makes money off those, but evidently they do! 🙂 One set-up shot here followed by a 6-shot gallery of the carnival people setting up things in the street in front of church.

And while they were banging metal together in setup process a choir was singing a spiritual song inside the church. An interesting contrast! 🙂
The church does this every year and does not use the public Central Park across the street but has activities in church parking lot and one block of street in front of church plus Bingo in the Fellowship Hall. I don’t get downtown much at night anymore but have shown photos of this in the past and may stop by one night for some shots, we’ll see.
