Police L.E.A.D. Program to Bring Carnival to Brunswick Square

Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.) is a non-profit organization supported by dedicated police officers who are committed to protecting our youth and communities from the proliferation of drugs, drug-related crimes, peer to peer/cyber bullying and violence.

 East Brunswick Police Officer Reggie Wright brought the L.E.A.D. program to the township’s fifth-graders, now the program is bringing some good times to local residents.

Families are invited to enjoy food, rides and entertainment at the L.E.A.D. Fest Carnival, a ten-day event hosted by Law Enforcement Against Drugs & Violence (L.E.A.D.), in East Brunswick, New Jersey at the Brunswick Square Mall.

The carnival is open to the public from:

Thursday, July 21 – Sunday, July 31

The hours are:

Monday – Friday: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Saturday/Sunday: 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Fairway rides along with midway by Reithoffer Shows are included in the general admission price of $5. To purchase discounted ride tickets and mega passes in advance of the carnival, please visit https://www.theleadfest.com/p/events/brunswick

The carnival will benefit the L.E.A.D. program, which provides services “on the street” and “in the classroom” to bring law enforcement and communities closer together, in East Brunswick. The “in the classroom” program is taught by 3000 trained instructors in 41 states. L.E.A.D. has the only proven effective, law enforcement-focused anti–drug, anti–violence curriculum for K-12 students in the U.S. The L.E.A.D. curriculum is taught over the course of a 10-week program to educate youth on how they can make smart decisions without the involvement of drugs or violence.
