Elks Funfest, 1930

  • Elks Funfest, 1930
  • "The Wakefield Lodge of Elks held a Funfest on Factory Field to raise money for the organization's charities. Originally scheduled to be held Friday through Monday (Labor Day), the carnival was extended to Wednesday due to inclement weather on Friday and Monday. The organization decided to extend the carnival rather than postpone it to the next weekend because the pony and goat rides, and the perishable stock could not be held until the weekend. The carnival featured two nights of firework displays, concerts by Michael Sibelli and his band, and the awarding of two automobiles and two diamond rings. Factory Field was developed as Victory Village in 1939." - Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Donofrio.
