The 2015 Galax Fire Department Carnival is in full swing – and shake, tilt and spin – at Felts Park each night this week through Saturday, offering plenty of rides, food and games of chance. Feel like visiting a lovely tropical island? Sit a spell at the bingo tent, where the (Galax) natives wait to help you surf a winning streak.

This year’s Galax Fire Department Carnival is underway through Saturday in Felts Park.

Gates open at 5 p.m. and the carnival and bingo will start at 6 p.m.

Bingo will be held every night from 6 p.m. until closing, with a 50 percent payout each game. There will be a $1,000 championship game on June 27 for qualifying players.

There will also be a $300 nightly cash drawing at 11 p.m. with one entry per paid adult gate ticket.

Fireworks will be held on June 27 at 11 p.m.
