Carnivals in MD are a favorite summer past time for many people, both young and old. A variety of volunteer fire companies hold carnivals in Carroll County, MD every summer. These are some of the largest fundraisers held each year. The monies made from the rides, games, food and raffles provide much needed financial support for the local fire departments. They have many expenses each year, including: maintaining and purchasing the various pieces of equipment, fuel for the equipment, supplies, the fire station and more.
