65th Annual Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival Opens Today

The Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival is usually a hit of the summer for us. We first brought her to the Jaycees Carnival in 2007 at 18 months. That was one of her first ride experiences. She has never looked back, and only gets more daring each year.

Rides at Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival

Rides at the carnival will be provided by Skerbeck Entertainment Group. Skerbeck also provided the rides for 2015. Last year, my daughter had a blast since they had a lot of thrill rides. However, I heard complaints from other parents that there was a gap between the thrill rides and tot rides.

Hopefully with a year of experience and feedback, they will bring a few more in-between rides this year. Last year, I did observe that the midway looked less crowded last year than in years past so there would be room to add a couple more rides.


Discount Ride Wristbands

Rides can be purchased on a per-ticket basis or by wristband. Wristbands can be purchased online in advance for $20 (before noon on June 22) and are valid for any one day. Wristbands will be available at the gate for $22 on Wednesday or Thursday and $25 on Friday-Sunday.
