Get Ready for the Madera Carnival!

Carnival_2013_webSaturday, May 18, 2013
11:00am to 3:00pm
Madera Lower Yard

Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Get ready to play! Come one and come all to feast your eyes on the spectacle that’s guaranteed to please. Witness the competition and delight in awe at Madera’s First Big Wheel Relay. Then hold fast as colorful balloons of frigid water sail over you in a flight from the Mega Water Balloon Launch! Taste the tender tri-trip and try only to imagine from which magical beast it was procured. Hold your breath in anticipation as your dare the trails of the Cupcake Walk. Test your skill at games of chance and sport and perhaps win a magnificent prize. Drink the juice that is Jamba’s, Taste the PIZZA that is a proud pie of Napoli! Marvel as you explore the world of the DanceDance Revolution Disco!

Support your school and enjoy all that will be the Madera Carnival!

Join the Big Wheel Relay!
