St. Rose of Lima Carnival

Saint Rose of Lima Church's annual carnival is happening right now in Miami Shores. Starting Friday, January 26, 2007, to Sunday, January 28.

This is a very special community event because parishioners and school families volunteer their weekend to put the carnival together. People attend not only from Miami Shores, but also from other schools and other areas in Miami. The funds raised in the carnival go towards a school and parish fund used to maintain and refurbish the St. Rose of Lima facilities. Community spirit is visible everywhere, booth sponsorship banners are placed all over the carnival, bazaar with all kinds of great stuff for sale, volunteers preparing food and manning booths with different games, 50/50 raffle, wine and beer tent, silent auction with items donated by families and local businesses, picnic area, and not to forget great carnival rides like The Ring of Fire, The Orbit and The Thunder Bolt. .....READ MORE
