ORANGE - Workers spent the day setting up and testing all of the rides today in preparation for the annual Orange Volunteer Fireman's Carnival tomorrow.

Organizers say the carnival is a tradition that extends all the way back to 1926, when the department was founded.

All of the money raised will go to fund the Orange Volunteer Fire Department, which buys its own equipment.

Fire officials say it's one big hometown event that people look forward to all year long.

The carnival opens at 5 p.m. tomorrow and admission is free.
