LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Catholic Charities of Livingston County (CCLC’s) long-awaited summer carnival takes place this weekend.
CCLC’s first ever Summer Family Fun Day will be Aug. 20 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Long Point Park on Conesus Lake, with a whole slew of events lined up for family and friends.
The celebrity dunk tank will certainly be a highlight. Starting at 1 p.m., participants will have the opportunity to dunk their favorite Livingston County figureheads, including Livingston County DA Greg McCaffrey from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., Geneseo Superintendent Tim Hayes from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Livingston County Undersheriff Matt Bean from 2:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., and Geneseo Central School 5th Grade Teacher Jeff Rose from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Kids will also be able to enjoy pony rides, a petting zoo, bounce houses, games, face painting, make & take crafts, and more. For adults there will be carnival games, food trucks, and a drawing for a weekend on Conesus Lake.
Tom Wahl’s, McAlister’s Deli and The Original Mac & Cheez will be cooking up Livingston County favorites during the carnival.
Cost is $10 for ages 14 and up, $5 for 3 to 13 and free for kids age 2 and under. All proceeds benefit Catholic Charities of Livingston County.
CCLC’s goal is to help people become independent from temporary assistance benefits (TANF) offered by the Department of Social Services (DSS). To do that, they have 10 signature programs. They offer transportation for the elderly, which is intended to keep working families working instead of transporting their loved ones. They offer counseling programs, parenting education programs, emergency housing, and emergency assistance for families who have shutoff notices for their heat bills. They also have food pantry and clothing cupboard programs.
