Carnival can satisfy the daring, the hungry

Published Oct. 2, 2005

There will be something for everyone Saturday at the seventh annual fall festival sponsored by Tims Memorial Presbyterian Church.

If the sky-wire ride and rappeling wall sound too venturesome, one can try specialty desserts at the outdoor cafe, barbecue, live entertainment and a country store with crafts made by church members.

For the young at heart, there will be a dunk tank and 18 carnival games and rides, such as the sky wire, in which riders sit in a cage that slides 150 feet from the high end of a tight cable to the lowest.

At the rappeling station, people will make their way down a 25-foot wall using a rope.

Younger fairgoers might not be permitted on the more daring rides, but they will have a chance to experience the thrill of riding a tractor, said Ken Kasan, assistant pastor of Tims Memorial.

The fair will be on church grounds at 601 Sunset Lane, just east of Sunset Plaza and U.S. 41 in Lutz.

The carnival opens at 10 a.m. The games end at 5 p.m., and food sales will continue until 6.

Proceeds will benefit the church, which is celebrating its 50th year.
