Will the games be free? I have two kids and they love the games, but can’t always afford them.
That’s a good question, Ashley. I’m going to have to look for the answer to it.
Okay, so I checked on this and they said that the carnival games will be at various vendor booths throughout the event. (I guess last year they had a dedicated area with carnival games?) Anyway, I’m still not 100% sure if all the carnival games will be free, but they told me there will be plenty of free family- and pet-friendly fun. (Wiener dog races, lol!)
I would plan on bringing some spending money for food at the very least, if it was me. 🙂
I really appreciate you Carolyn for setting this up. A lot of single parents love when you post free events. I just love it all. Again, thanks.
Aw, thank you for the kind words, Dee! I feel like there are so many fun, free things to do here in Wichita that somebody ought to be gathering them all into one spot! I’m so glad it’s helpful to you.
