To some of the younger festival attendees, the carnival and its rides are the main attraction of the weekend. Tickets are sold at the carnival entrance and can then be redeemed to ride the carnival rides. On Sunday, June 9, bring your kids out for wristband day where you can buy a wristband for your little thrill-seeker and they can ride unlimited rides during festival hours for only $20 per person!
PS – the wristbands fit adults too, but we suggest saving the funnel cake until after you’ve gotten your fill of carnival rides.
