NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa., -- The New Cumberland River Rescue Carnival kicks off on Wednesday night at the Hillside Elementary School.
The annual event includes food vendors, rides, and entertainment each day of the carnival. The carnival runs Wednesday, August 3rd to Saturday, August 6th from 5-10 pm.
The carnival benefits the New Cumberland River Rescue to help them pay for every day expenses and updated equipment. The River Rescue is a non-profit organization that helps respond to all water-related emergencies in New Cumberland and several surrounding communities.
"We have to pay the every day expenses like you do at home and then we have to update our equipment pretty much every year to keep on things," said Tim Stoner, New Cumberland River Rescue.
