Carnival rides, games, and all the junk food you can possibly consume in two hours means that the Danbury City Carnival is back in town.

The Danbury City Fair, you might say, is a throwback to the days of the Great Danbury State Fair. According to the Danbury Daily VoiceThe Powers Great American Midways Carnival, or better known as the Danbury City Fair will kickoff its run at the Danbury Fair Mall on Thursday, May 25 and will Tilt-A-Whirl its way through Sunday, June 11.
