If it is being set up in the same location as last year, it will be in the parking lot on the Target/Macy's side of the mall, in the area where you would park to go to Cloud 9 Energy Bowls or Schuler Shoes.

Last year rides like the Zipper, Ferris Wheel, Sizzler, Tornado, and more were all set up and entertaining guests. In addition to the great rides, fair food favorites like corn dogs, funnel cakes, and cotton candy were all being made fresh on site.

I made it out to the carnival a few times last year, and it was a great way to kick off the summer fair and festival season. I can't wait to get out there again this year and do the same.
