FAIRFIELD - The McKinley School Carnival kicks off Friday night at Jennings Beach in Fairfield. 

Organizers say this is the school's biggest fundraiser of the year and proceeds help pay for field trips and school supplies. This year, parents are concerned about budget cuts.

"It's important that we as parents band together and work as a team so we can give our kids the chance and opportunities to have experiences in school and out of school," event chairperson Jill Kellerman says.

Organizers say there will be rides for all ages and plenty of food. The event runs through Sunday afternoon and parking is free.
