Wristbands are for the rides. Each time block costs $20. There are 3 time blocks for wristbands. So if you are going to all 3 you would pay $60.

The carnival was scheduled to open on Thursday, July 1st BUT they could not open on the 1st because they don’t have enough help. Because they don’t have enough help it takes longer to set up, that is why they were here setting up yesterday.

There is no fee to get in, so anytime they are open you can go and walk around, purchase food, games and tickets for rides.

Enjoy everyone! Its been a while since we have had a carnival in town!
