Out & About: Fuzzy Few Carnival


It began with a beard-growing contest. The committee organizing Hummelstown’s bicentennial celebration in 1962 raised money by selling shaving “permits’’ to the men in town. Soon bearded men were forming their own small fraternities, and one – the Fuzzy Few – stayed together to raise money for good causes.


The Fuzzy Few held its 51st annual carnival from Monday, Aug. 4 to Saturday, Aug. 9 at Hummelstown’s Boro Park.


Yet another generation of kids played carnival games, laughed on carnival rides, and ate carnival delicacies. Bands performed for teenagers and adults.


See who – and what – was there!
