The Saint Therese Carnival is one the biggest and best events in our area, that helps kick off the summer. And this year is better than ever as Hopatcong Lake Regional News visited the Carnival on Thursday.

St Therese Carnival 2019 Crowd In1During our visit we found out why this annual summer event is one of the greatest carnivals found in North Jersey with major fun for the whole family. The carnival has entertainment for all ages including carnival rides, games, food, events, demonstrations, bands, and family-friendly entertainment. This excellent family friendly event gets bigger and better every year and is sure to pass the entire family's expectations.

According to Michael Calabrese, Carnival Committee Chairman of St. Therese. “This event continues to be a major fundraiser for the Parish with this year’s funds helping to continue our many community building activities at the parish.”
