The annual St Joan of Arc Parish Carnival is right around the corner, and tickets are available at ShopRite on Route 70 in Marlton. It is free to get in the carnival, but you do need tickets for the rides. You can skip the ticket lines and get right to the rides by purchasing ride bracelets in advance at the customer service desk. The bracelets are $25 each and are good for one night of rides for one child. The Carnival will run from Monday August 20th to Saturday August 25th, from 6 pm to 11 pm each night.
Rides include Boomers, Berrygoround, Dinosaurs, Merry Motorcycles, and Canoes for the little ones under three feet. For the bigger kids, there’s another 10 rides including the Merry Go Round, Giant Slide, Gondola Wheel, and bumper cars. The carnival features a live band each night with performances by The Rustics, Marquee 3, Project: Analog, and Strange Brew.
