The Heroes for a Cure Carnival and Fall Festival will be this weekend at Rosmarins Day Camp, 12 School Road in Monroe. And it's a holiday weekend, so the festivities go on for four days. Friday, Oct. 5 from 6 pm - 10 pm, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7 from noon - 10 pm, and Monday, Oct. 8 from noon - 7 pm.

The festival will be hosted by culinary rocker Johnny Ciao, and will feature live music from several bands, including Hudson Valley favorites Professor Louie and The Crowmatix. There will also be a live Kodiak bear exhibit, Fireworks, Macaroni the Clown, a magic show with illusionist Ryan Dutcher, helicopter and hot air balloon rides, carnival rides, games, local craft beers and wines, and lots of food and vendors. All that fun, and all for a great cause.
