The Wilton Rotary Club's summer-ending carnival drew a big crowd on Saturday afternoon, with kids of all ages piling on such rides at the Avalanche, Pirate Ship, and the giant slide. Many an attendee carried a stuffed animal or balloon alien, prizes from playing one of the many games from darts to Whack-A-Mole.

The carnival ran Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 16-18, at the intersection of Route 7 and School Road. — Jeannette Ross photos
