FAIRFIELD — It “shore” was a great night to kick things off for the annual Holy Family Church carnival at Jennings Beach.

The carnival’s lights glowed brightly as the sun set on a warm Friday evening, attracting crowds for old-fashioned fun.

The three-day event features a range of amusement rides and games, as well as foods like burgers and hot dogs and plenty of sweet treats.

The carnival continues at Jennings Beach on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Wristbands for all-rides access are available for $25.
