Athens Lions Club Adds One Week to 2018 Kiddie Carnival Calendar
The Athens Lions Club 2018 Kiddie Carnival has been extended for an additional weekend. The carnival will now be open each Thursday, Friday and Saturday night thorough Saturday August 11th. The hours are 6:30pm-9:30pm with free admission and each ride is just one 50 cent ticket.
The Carnival has...
... 9 rides for toddlers and young children, including a miniature train, swings, small ferris wheel and miniature roller coaster. A lighted scrambler ride was recently added. The carnival was extended in part to allow kids an extra weekend to ride this replacement scrambler ride that was recently acquired by the Lions Club and because a few other rides have been down. The popular rocket ship rides have been inoperable ever since they were hit by a vehicle in early July.
The Kiddie Carnival is operated by Athens Lions Club members and other volunteers and normally operates for 6 weekends each summer. The Kiddie Carnival is located across from Athens Middle School at 309 E Forrest Street..
