OAKLAND, N.J. -- Oakland's four-day carnival is coming next week, from Wednesday to Saturday, June 15-18 -- and there will be a free shuttle bus from the Copper Tree Mall to the carnival on Friday and Saturday.
The carnival will feature rides, food, games and other entertainment. You can buy wristbands for unlimited rides for $25, and $30 for Saturday, at the ticket booth.
You can also buy the wristbands in advance, for $20 cash, either at Oakland Town Hall, or at ReMax Traditions RE, 383 Ramapo Valley Rd., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays or 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
One event flyer notes, "Come experience the Rolls Royce of port-a-potties on site, with air conditioning, luxury lighting and free Wi-Fi up to 20 feet away." Yes, really.
Here are the carnival hours:
- Wednesday, June 15 -- 6-10 p.m.
- Thursday, June 16 -- 6-10 p.m.
- Friday, June 17 -- 6-11 p.m.

There will be fireworks at 9:45 p.m. on Saturday -- and the rides will be closed, for safety reasons, during the fireworks. The shuttle buses will run from 5:30-11:30 on Friday and 4:30-11:30 on Saturday.
The carnival's games of chance will be run by -- and benefit -- the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge.Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
