Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival
Tickets will be available mid-June at www.zoppecolorado.com or at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center, 4005 Kipling Street. Opening performance is Aug.16 at 7 p.m. This special engagement runs through Aug. 25, 2013.
This year’s Carnation Festival will feature new rides on the midway including inflatables, such as jumpy castles, jousting, climbing walls, carnival games, balloon darts and activities for kids of all ages.
Returning to the Festival this year are many of the favorites like the midway, food, two nights of fireworks, the chili cook-off, live bands and a parade. Free activities for kids include the Kids Craft Central booth. The Arvada Association of Modelers Club will demonstrate their planes and the quarter-midget race cars will be back.
The festival will once again provide a shuttle bus parking opportunity.
Whether you’re interested in participating in one of the events, or just attending, mark your calendars for Wheat Ridge’s biggest event of the year: 44th annual Carnation Festival, August 16 and 17, 2013!
