Big Glen Burnie Carnival

A Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carnival midway and lots of food — does anything say “summer” more joyously than the classic town carnival? The folks at the Glen Burnie Improvement Association have been putting on one of the area’s best for over 100 years, and this year’s edition promises to follow suit. More than 20 rides in all, plus wheels of chance, bingo, a dime pitch (we all need more plates, right?) and more. Plus all the hamburgers you could possibly want. Opens Friday and runs through Aug. 5 (except for Sunday) on the association grounds, 19 Crain Highway South. 6:30 p.m.-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 6:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m....
