Paradise Amusements-Carnival Rides

Friday, 7/27 through Saturday, 8/4 starting at 6:00pm nightly. Closing time for rides will vary depending on weather and attendance but typically close around 11:00pm. 

 

 

DAILY ADMISSION

Look closely at the prices of admission below. They are detailed based on the day. 

The prices this year are the EXACT same as last year. Please note that last year we had to raise our admission prices to cover the upkeep of our facilities and to cover the increasing cost of utilities. We were the last county fair in this area to raise our prices because we knew it would be a hardhsip on some people, however we had no choice. After Paradise Amusement is paid their share, 100% of the remaining admission money goes toward fair grounds facilities. Fair board members and other fair workers are strictly volunteer and recieve ZERO pay ever. As a matter of fact many members regularly pay for things out of our own pockets. We volunteer so that Madison County can have one of the best county fairs in the state!!
