The carnival - one of life's simple pleasures. Whether you're there for the food or you're there for the rides, there's no denying that hitting up a festival is the joy we need in our lives. If you're ready to unleash your inner kid, you may just want to mark your calendar for the Sacred Heart Fall Festival.
This carnival-style event will be full to the brim with a variety of kiddie, average, and exhilarating rides, food, and free entertainment. Get a sky-high view of the park on the classic Ferris Wheel, or try your luck at one of the carnival games. Start practicing your ring toss skills!
If the reason you come to the carnival is for the food, you're in luck. The Sacred Heart Festival will have a scrumptious selection including smoked mullet, turkey legs, burgs, nugs, sweets and more. Beer, wine and other beverages will also be available for purchase. You may want to wear something with a little stretch - especially if you plan on doin' all 5 days.
While general admission, parking, and some entertainment are free, some rides will come with a little cost. If you want to avoid overspending, they'll have armband deals available. Single-day armbands give you unlimited access to all of the rides, and they're only $20 each; even better, the 5-day wrist band is only $75. Tickets will be available for advance purchase October 1st.
Whether you're stopping in quick or want to make it an all-day adventure, you won't want to miss out on the carnival fun; grab your BFFs and unleash your inner kid to make it a week to remember.
