Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department via Facebook

On Saturday, July 11, 2020, the Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department announced this year’s carnival would not be taking place due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department canceled theirs on June 11, 2020. Below is the post from the PFVFD’s Facebook concerning the cancellation.

To our community:

The Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department regrets to announce the cancellation of our annual carnival. We know this is a staple in our area and our supporters look forward to attending every year. This was not an easy decision, but in light of the current health crisis, we feel your safety is the number one priority.

This is the one event where our volunteers interact with the public the most and we are going to miss the smiles of the little ones meeting local firefighters, making memories on the rides, and enjoying the food. Please continue to follow us on all of our social media platforms as we continue to do what we love for our citizens. Take care during this time.
