Feast of Saint Theresa to begin amid safety concerns
The celebration of the Feast of Saint Theresa begins tonight in parts of Pelham Bay, but parents are worried about the rides after last year's roller coaster accident.
A children's roller coaster ran off its tracks, injuring 11 kids. The coaster did not return this year, but the same operator, Tri-Star Amusements, has returned.
Tri-Star Amusements says the city has inspected all the rides and issued certificates to prove it. They also say the certificates are available for public inspection at the ticket booth.
The feast runs through Sunday and proceeds will benefit the Saint Theresa Parish and school.
