Carnival rides require tickets. They can be purchased through July 10 at reduced prices at Apples at Shoreway Shopping Center.

Tickets are sold in sheets of 20 for $20. Once the carnival opens, tickets cost $1.50 each.

A one-day wristband allows you unlimited rides. Advance sale is $17/day. Once the carnival opens, cost is $20/day. Wristbands can be bought a day ahead. Buyers will be given a voucher that is exchanged at a ticket booth for that day's specific wristband. The wristband colors change daily.

Proceeds from ticket sales help Community Civic Council support school and community groups, provide Christmas baskets for local families in need and contribute to upkeep of the Community Center floor and Sheffield Lake park improvements.
