  1. It had been over 40 years since I went to Schenevus firemans carnnival. My grandparents had a large farm there and as kids we always went. This year I took my son and grandkids. It was just as I had remembered it. Great parade, food , and entertainment. Very family oriented. We had a wonderful time.
