What a fantastic weekend for some family fun! Don’t be wasting any time this summer cleaning your house! Get out and enjoy the sunshine!

This weekend is one of my favorite carnivals – The Queen of Heaven Carnival!  This is always a definite must during the summer for me!  There are so many activities happening at this carnival that you have plan accordingly to get them all in!

Today, the activities run until midnight, and then tomorrow, they start back up at noon and run until 10 p.m. This weekend, there will be so much fun for the entire family. There’s live (and free) entertainment, large midway rides, games and more. Tomorrow, definitely come with an empty stomach because they will serve up some amazing chicken and ribs.  While you're out there, make sure you get in to win the vehicle and trip giveaway. I drive past the display out in front often, and I'm just drooling at the beautiful car, motorcycle, boat or recreation vehicle they have for your choice if you win! Spend the day riding the rides, playing games, eating some amazing food and spending time with the family. The best part is that they have free parking and free admission! Just come down and enjoy the day at the Queen of Heaven Carnival. The carnival is set up in West Seneca at the Queen of Heaven Church grounds on Seneca Street and Mill, just one block east of Southgate Plaza.

Then on Tuesday and every Tuesday till August 20 in Depew is their Free Outdoor Family Movie Night and Kids Pajama Party. The movie begins at dusk, which I've decided is about 9:30/9:45 p.m. (school's out, so it’s OK if the kiddies stay up that late too -- they have my permission!). The movies are shown on the grass next to Green Acres Ice Cream on Broadway in Depew. The best part is the pajama party because they will be having prizes for the kids for the cutest pajamas and the craziest pajamas, and this year, they have the best movie themed pajamas based on the movie that is showing that week. This week they will be showing Escape from Planet Earth.
