The Rotary Club of Brazil recently announced it is bringing a new carnival company to Forest Park for the 76th Brazil Rotary 4th of July Celebration. For 25 years, Cumberland Valley Shows -- based out of Lebanon, Tenn., and owned by Jeremy and Kate Floyd -- has prided itself in providing the best in family entertainment.
The Floyds say it has always been a goal of Cumberland Valley Shows to make every visit of every patron a memorable and enjoyable one.
The Cumberland Valley Shows Carnival was featured in "Hannah Montana: The Movie."
Cumberland Valley Shows carries with it an entourage of spectacular rides, children's rides, games and food. Some of the larger rides include the Downdraft, Himalaya, the new High Energy, and the 65-foot-tall Eagles 16 Ferris Wheel.
Children's rides include the Carousel, the Circus Train and a variety of others.
As an alternate to mechanical rides, Cumberland Valley Shows has numerous attractions including the Glass House (a mirror maze), The Magic Carpet (a multi-level fun house), and the giant 90-foot-long Super Slide.
For those who love a game of skill, state-of-the-art midway games such as Water Race and the traditional Duck Pond, among others, are provided.
Carnival food is always a favorite among midway patrons and Cumberland Valley Shows will provide several, including corn dogs, hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, cotton candy and popcorn.
Ticket prices will also be new this year, with Cumberland Valley Shows and the Rotary Club of Brazil working together to make ride prices as family friendly as possible. During the past three years, the Rotary Club of Brazil was using a different carnival company and was locked into ticket prices.
"It will be very different this year because the owners of Cumberland Valley Shows are great to work with," Rotary Club of Brazil President Dr. Miranda Goodale said. "Jeremy and Kate Floyd really want to help Rotary offer ticket pricing that is very family friendly."
Advance sale tickets are currently available at First Financial Bank, Harris Bank, Riddell National Bank and Terre Haute Savings Bank in Brazil.
Pay one price tickets are $10 each in advance and will be $15 at the park.
"I hope that these prices, which are lower than the last three years, will allow more people to come out and enjoy the celebration and come out more often," Goodale said
