Ticket sales will aid local youth clubs

When the Marion County Fair hosts the largest carnival in its history later this month, local 4-H clubs and FFA chapters will benefit financially from advance-ticket sales.

The Marion County Fair Association is encouraging people to buy advance tickets for the carnival because Wagner?s Carnival will be donating 10 percent of the sales receipts to those two youth organizations.

Based in Aransas Pass, Texas, Wagner?s Carnival has been providing safe family fun and entertainment throughout the Midwest for more than 30 years.

The company offers more than 30 attractions, including 15 to 17 rides that range from gentle to thrilling, games based on luck and skill and a variety of food concessions.

Rides include the old-fashioned favorites such the merry-go-round and Ferris wheel, to new fast and high-energy rides such as the Zipper and Force 10.

Advance tickets are on sale now through July 27 for $15 each at local banks and grocery stores. An advance ticket enables the holder to unlimited carnival rides on one night of the fair.

Advance tickets will need to be exchanged for a wristband at the carnival ticket booth.

Ticket prices will increase to $20 once the fair begins, July 27. Individual tickets also will be sold for $1 each, with one to four tickets necessary per ride.

Advance carnival tickets can be purchased at the following locations around the county:

? Burns: Community National Bank.

? Florence: Cottonwood Valley Bank.

? Goessel: Citizens State Bank

? Hillsboro: Central National Bank, Hillsboro State Bank, Dale?s Supermarket, Vogts? Hometown Market.

? Lincolnville: Pilsen State Bank.

? Marion: Marion National Bank, Central National Bank, Tampa State Bank.

? Peabody: Peabody State Bank, Peabody Market.
