The Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce will bring back their local "Chamber Carnival" for a fourth year this June.

The carnival will be held from June 7 to June 10. It is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on June 7, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on June 8 and 9, and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

It will be held at the same place as last year, in the field next to the Tulalip Cabela's at 9810 Quil Ceda Blvd., Tulalip.

"We are discounting the wrist bands even lower this year," said Jesica Stickles, president/CEO of the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce.

An all-day pass will be $20 if they are pre-ordered and $25 if they are bought at the gate.

More information about pre-ordering tickets can be found at the chamber's website at http://www.marysvilletulalipchamber.com.

Stickles said that people like that the carnival is clean and close to them. "The convenience of having it right here is a big draw," she said.

It also provides funds to the chamber.

The carnival is run by Butler Amusements, who provide a portion of the profits to a local partner, in this case the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to being a fundraiser, the carnival also helps draw people to Marysville.

"Since the carnival is right off of I-5 it helps draw in tourists from the people that pass by the event and see it while driving, even those that aren't from this area," said Stickles.

Those people will often spend money at the local restaurants and businesses around that area, she said.

"It's known to be a great place to drop off your teenager after dark," said Stickles.

"And parents can go the casino or shopping at the mall while that is happening, so the carnival can help retail stores out, too," she said.

This year's carnival is also happening early in the summer.

"It's fun this year that we get to be the carnival that kicks off the summer season," said Stickles.

A few more vendor booths will also be available at this year's carnival.

"We've got six booths that are selling a variety of things like jewelry, face painting and candles," said Stickles.

A local school band is also scheduled to provide some entertainment at this year's carnival as well.

The chamber plans to have a booth at the Marysville Health Community Challenges Day on June 2 where winners will get a ticket for a free carnival ride as well.
