With the weather warming up, people are looking to get outside more and have fun in the summer sun. This means that local carnivals are starting to visit the area with their mix of rides, games, food, and entertainment for the whole family.
Here are some of the local carnivals to look out for this season. Go support them because many of them also serve as local fundraisers for our schools and fire and rescue services.
