Memorial Day Weekend Carnival at Mount Prospect Plaza Schedule …

1 pm – 10 pm Sunday and Monday

This year’s carnival will benefit Northwest Compass food bank, Clearbrook, the fight against glycogen storage disease and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Proceeds will also support a local elementary school.

The festival will feature rides for all ages, from “thrill rides” for the more adventurous thrill seeker to rides fit for families and small children. The carnival will also feature the traditional carnival food and games the public has enjoyed for years.

Flat price unlimited-ride bracelets will be available for $20 Thursdays from 6 pm – close and on Saturday – Monday from 1 – 5 pm. The Jaycees will also be holding a food drive during the event as well. Anyone bringing a canned food donation can get a discount of up to $2 off the ride bracelet (limit one bracelet per person, $1 per canned item).

The carnival is a community service project of the Mount Prospect Jaycees, with the generous support of the Fantasy Amusement Company and Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust.
