In Benefit of the Hyattsville FOP 10 Day Reithoffer Carnival Comes to West Hyattsville from 3rd thru 13 May 2012

Having captured the recent spring 2012 clean-up of the fields that surround the WMATA West Hyattsville Station when last Sunday that a friend and I first noctied what we thought to have been construction trailers I wondered if the long anticipated West Hyattsville Commons redevelopment project was about to begin.

And then on Tuesday morning that my friend and I passed through the field again we then realized that a carnival was being set-up.  Unable to find any information on the internet regarding the May 2012 Reithoffer Carnival at the Hyattsville location when passing through the field again on Thursday morning that I inquired of details from two members of the set-up crew they informed me that the festival would be run from Thursday, 3 May through Sunday, 13 May.

Hours of operation from Monday through Friday will be from 5 until 10 pm (perhaps later depending on the crowd) and from 1 pm until 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Wanting to bring attention to the event I returned later on yesterday afternoon to capture opening day of the May 2012 Reithoffer Carnival at the Hyattsville MD event.

My video clips of the event may be found on YouTube.

Located just behind and within walking disance from the WMATA West Hyattsville Station in what the locals refer to as Ginsfield the 10 day festival and can be found at the intersection Ager Road and Lancer Drive in Hyattsville MD.

UPDATE.  While this article was written on 3 May, t is now Sunday morning, 5 May 2012 and in reading my daily news update from the Hyattsville Patch I lean that this event is actually in benefit of the Hyattsville Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).
