Sentinel staff report–
The Sunrise Mall parking lot will again be transformed into an outdoor carnival, as Brass Ring Amusements brings its annual Spring Carnival to town from March 15-24 this year.
A spinning “Jumbo the Elephant” ride and a swinging “Sea Dragon” ship will be new features at this year’s carnival, according to Susie Rodgers, assistant general manager of Sunrise Mall. She also said the 130-foot-tall “Star Tower” ride will be returning, along with annual attractions like the Century Wheel and various other rides for both children and adults.
An event listing on the mall’s Facebook page says the carnival will be open weekdays from 4 to 10 p.m., and weekends from noon until 10 p.m., weather permitting.
Ride tickets run $30 for unlimited rides, but discounted tickets can be purchased in advance online for $20, with an additional $2 processing fee added for each ticket. Individual tickets can also be purchased separately.
The Fair Oaks-based carnival company that puts on spring and fall carnivals in Citrus Heights each year, also brings its travelling “Midway of Fun” carnivals to various county fairs and events across the state. The company’s website, midwayoffun.com, says the group has been providing carnival amusement since 1991.
