Carnival returns to Ararat

FOLLOWING last year’s success, Ararat families will again be able to enjoy a family carnival later this month.

The carnival will be at a new venue – Kokoda Public Reserve – and will offer a fun, safe event for people of all ages.

Running from the 18th to the 20th of February, the carnival will offer families all sorts or rides and amusements including dodgem cars, jumping castles, twister cha cha, Wallygator Kids Ride, Bungee trampolines and the ultimate party machine.

Carnival spokeswoman Christine Woodall said her team are looking forward to entertaining the Ararat community once again.

“We really enjoyed coming to Ararat and not only is it a beautiful city, we discovered it has lots of beautiful restaurants,” she said.

“We’re at Kokoda Public Reserve, we would have preferred the previous location (Gordon Street) but there is work going on there,” Ms Woodall said.

“We would like to get more people along to the fireworks. People don’t realise, it costs a lot to put on the fireworks and we would love more people to come to the carnival on the Saturday night to enjoy them.”

The carnival will be held over three days – Friday 18th February 5pm-10.30pm, Saturday 19th February 12pm-10.30pm and Sunday 20th February 11am-5pm.

The fireworks display will be held at 9.30 on Saturday night and pet owners near Kokoda Public Reserve are asked to make sure their animals are restrained.

Admission is $2 per person.
