The 70th Guam Summer Carnival & Night Market continues now through Aug. 16 at the Tiyan, Barrigada Carnival Grounds. Carnival hours are 6 p.m.-11 p.m. weekdays and until midnight on weekends and holidays. Admission is free.

Under this year’s theme of “generations of service and sacrifice,” the carnival features local and international foods, desserts, treats, sweets and delicacies. Games of skill and chance, bingo, caricature painting, novelties, kids rides and amusement rides that average $2 each are on hand. Kids of all gages can also look forward there vending booths hawking toys, hats and accessories.

There is also a rock wall and agricultural displays. Other attractions include a trampoline, off-roading, balloons, arts and crafts, paintball, zip line, cockfighting and a casino – so adults, don’t forget to bring cash. Grownups can also enjoy a beer garden sporting more than the typical lineup of suds.

Thanks to GTA, this year’s festivities also come with free Wi-Fi.

Don’t miss the dazzling fireworks displays every Sunday night at 8 p.m. – and, of course, on July 4 and Liberation Day (July 21) – at the carnival grounds. The event also features live entertainment: June 26 at 7 p.m. is open-mic Karaoke Night, a contest with a cash giveaway.

The Liberation Carnival lineup for this weekend is the cultural dance troupe Uso Fealofani at 7 p.m. om June 27, followed by Island Kaiz’s island music at 8 p.m.

While there are still several weeks left to enjoy the carnival, don’t for get to mark your calendar for Guam’s 70th Annual Liberation Day Parade down Marine Corps Drive in Hagatna on July 21.
