The Orange Lions Club Carnival will be held this year from Sept. 30-Oct. 3 and Oct. 7-10 at Lions City Park off of 16th Street and MacArthur Drive in Orange. The annual event is one that draws in people from all over the area and includes food, games and rides for them to enjoy.

“This is the 76th year of the carnival,” Randy Lejeune, president of the Little Cypress Lion’s Club, said. “It looks like the weather will be great. Come out and help support our local community and enjoy great food and fun rides.”

The carnival opens at 6:30 p.m. each day and on Oct. 3, which is Kiddie Day, it will open a bit earlier at 4 p.m.

Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children ages 13-18. Children 12 and younger get in for free and rides are all $1. Some of the rides attendees can enjoy are the kiddie train, carousel, ferris wheel, the Sizzler, the Texas Round Up, and many more.

One of the most popular attractions of the fair is the Orange Lions hamburger, which many carnival-goers swear by.

The burgers are cooked to perfection each year by 40-year Lions Club member Larry David – he’s better known as “Uncle Larry” to carnival attendees.

“(The fair offers) great food, fun games, and it’s for charity,” Lejeune said. “The money is made is used to help people in need in our community.”
