It's Central Regional and Brick's first annual summertime carnival raising money for students. The students are calling it BCC, get down with BCC.

From Central Regional's Facebook page:

This looks like a lot of fun. The carnival runs from Tuesday, August 9th through Saturday, August 13th, 2022. I'm really hoping they have good weather for this.

Driving by Central Regional High School and watching and seeing the rides go up is such a cool thing. Speaking of carnivals, the swings and the super slide (that's where you go down the slide with a burlap bag) are the two most popular rides at a carnival after a little bit of research.

My favorite is the Ferris wheel. Iconic Ferris wheels are always in movies or TV shows. The Ferris when is the best ride, hands down, at a carnival and I'm sure this one will be no different.

It's not just the rides, it's all about the carnival food, food trucks, games, and a lot of fun. This carnival runs for five nights. All the money raised is going to the students.

Unlimited rides for four hours with wristbands. Wristbands at the gate are $35. There is a $2 entrance fee for everyone. Individual ride tickets are available at the carnival, as well.

The fun rides are from Campy's Blue Star Amusements. My daughter is excited about this and so are her friends. What a great idea for raising money for scholarships for students.

Central Regional High School is located at 509 Forest Hills Pkwy in Bayville. Central Regional High School is right off of the Berkeley exit of the Garden State Parkway, real easy to get to.

Have fun at the carnival. It all starts tonight at 5:00 pm.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
