It is a Northland tradition The Mighty Thomas Carnival, which opens on Wednesday July 4th, as part of Fourth Fest, in the DECC Parking lot. I am not someone who is big into rides ( I have horrible motion sickness) but I still enjoy all the sites and sounds of the carnival.

Residents and visitors alike appreciate the convenience of this carnival right in the heart of the city, and it sure has a lot to offer.The Midway has a huge variety of rides for adults and families, rides specifically for little kids, games, and of course the delicious concession stands.

When our kids were little they always loved to go on the rides and play some of the games . I was the person holding all the bags or the half eaten food, but that's o.k. because to see the pure joy on the kids faces was what it is all about.
