Midway Carnival & Food at the Fair

Midway Carnival

Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or prefer the gentle pace of the swings, the carnival midway at the fair has rides to please every age. Rise high above the fairgrounds on the ferris wheel or pack the whole family into a spinning tub and jockey over who gets control of the wheel. Tots will squeal with delight on the motorcycle merry-go-round and their own kiddie-sized ferris wheel, while teens can get their adrenaline rush from strapping into the Sidewinder for an upside down, stomach-dropping dive. Feeling lucky? Step right up to the carnival games. Play it safe with the prize-guaranteed duck pond or see if you have what it takes to ring the bell on the high striker.

The midway carnival and rides will be presented by R&D Amusements.
