GERONIMO Who says there's nothing new for a 106-year-old?
As Geronimo residents gear up to celebrate number 106, this year's party features a carnival, after a long-time absence, both Friday and Saturday night along with a pow wow on Friday night. But the parade, vendors, food, contests and, of course, bull riding are still a part of this two-day celebration.
One of the event organizers, Kelly Buchfink, said she was excited they are going to have carnival rides this year.
"On Friday night from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. is bracelet night with unlimited rides for $15," she said. "Must be 36 inches or taller to purchase a bracelet."
"This is a big carnival with 7 to 8 rides," said Geronimo Fire Chief and also one of the event organizers, Norman Leveille.
After 10 p.m. on Friday and all day Saturday carnival rides will require tickets.
All the events of the weekend start with the parade which begins at the elementary school, going down Main Street and ending near the Senior Citizens Center.
Theme for the parade this year is "Anything Goes" and includes various floats, antique cars and tractors and at least three riding clubs, said Buchfink.
