And around and around…

Children enjoy a whirl on the carnival swing at the 47th annual St. Adelaide Carnival.

St. Adelaide Catholic Church and Academy will host its 51st annual carnival, a three-day event starting Sept. 28  on the school grounds

“This year’s carnival features a variety of great live entertainment (music, dance, even acrobatics!), food and beverage booths offering delicious Mexican and Filipino cuisine (as well as classics like hamburgers and hot dogs), a beer truck serving your favorite ice-cold drafts, exciting amusement park rides, and fun booths and games for all ages,” said Lynette Smilac in a press release.

On Friday, the San Bernardino Teen Music Workshop will perform alternative and classic rock covers, plus original songs. The workshop has performed at Disney’s California Adventure, Knott’s Berry Farm, the National Orange Show, Sea World and the California Theater for the Performing Arts.

Saturday will include performances by Los Mariposa Ballet Folklorico Group of Redlands, the Aquinas High School Marching Band and an eclectic mix of dance, rock, Top 40, disco and Motown performed by Mirage Groove.

On Sunday, Great Y Circus from the Redlands Family YMCA will present dazzling acrobatics followed by the psychedelic folk blues music of Desert Animals.

The raffle and grand auction are at 6 p.m. Sunday. Raffle ticket holders will have the chance to win $1,000 or $500 and get five chances to win $100. Last year’s raffle included bids on wine tasting at Callaway Vineyard, a Raiders’ helmet, restaurant and theme park gift certificates and a Hawaiian vacation.
