By J.D. O’Gara (Local Town Pages) - Summer in Millis is set to start with a bang when Millis hosts its Fourth Annual Millis Carnival on June 22nd, 23rd and 24th, thanks to the Millis Recreation Department and sponsored by Roche Bros, Imperial Cars and the Millis Cultural Council, which pays for entertainment.
Following Friday’s carnival opening from 6-10 p.m., family festivities will ensue on Saturday, starting at 12:30 p.m., when the Millis Firefighters will lead a parade of fire trucks and emergency vehicles, as well as specialty cars from the Cliquot Cruisers, to the fairgrounds at the town field. In addition to rides, games and concessions, Saturday at the Millis Carnival will feature the Corvairs, who will play at 7 p.m., followed by fireworks to end the day at 9 p.m. In the event of rain, both the concert and fireworks will take place on Sunday, June 24, at the same time. On Sunday, carnival hours will be 1-6 p.m., with a $15 ride-all-you-want special from 1-5 p.m.
