The carnival is coming to Bridgehampton, but it is not all fun and games. Its proceeds will benefit the Southampton Housing Authority and its development corporation, called Ascend Homes and Community Foundation.

The carnival, from Newton Shows, will be held in the open field at 1995 Montauk Highway, next to Carvel, from Thursday, July 13 through July 16, and then again from July 19 to July 22. The hours are 6 to 11 nightly, and there will be rides, games, and food. Wristbands will be sold ahead of time for $23 until noon next Thursday, good for pay-one-price days next Thursday, July 16, July 19, and July 20. They are available on

On July 15, the radio station 101.7 the Beach will broadcast live from the carnival from 6 to 9 p.m.
