Registration and carnival ticket sales open Friday at noon with carnival rides and campsite games opening at 4 p.m. Entertainment and music gets underway at 5:15 p.m. Friday.

Saturday’s festivities begin at 9 a.m. with an opening and survivor ceremony. The carnival will re-open at 10 a.m. and wrap up at 4 p.m. with closing ceremonies. There will also be cancer screenings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Wristbands for the carnival can be purchased for $25 per person and are valid both days.
