Rides, vendors and food will be available at the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce’s annual Chamber Carnival which will be held June 6 to June 9 this year.
The carnival is located at 9600 Quil Ceda Blvd., Tulalip between the Tulalip Home Depot and Cabela’s.
It will be open on June 6 from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., on June 7 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., on June 8 from noon to 11 p.m. and on June 9 from noon to 10 p.m.
There is no cover charge and an all-day wristband costs $30.
Chamber officials said they are excited about this year’s carnival.
“Families like the variety of rides we have, including rides for the little ones and rides for the teens,” said Jesica Stickles, president/CEO of the chamber.
Rides and games are provided by a carnival company that the chamber works with for the event.
The company shares some of the proceeds of the carnival with the chamber so that the event provides funds for their events and programs throughout the year.
“This year they let us lower the price a little as well,” said Stickles. All-day wristbands this year cost $22 for those who pre-register by June 5.
Pre-sale wristbands are available at the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce office at 8825 34th Ave. NE, Suite C.
Stickles said they put the carnival on every year because it’s a tourist draw as well, and helps bring people into the Quil Ceda Village area.
“We’re fortunate enough to secure the land lease by Cabela’s each year which is very visible from I-5 and that draws a lot of people into it,” she said.
A number of local businesses will also have booths at the carnival.
“The parents can do some shopping while they're at the carnival,” said Stickles. “We’ve got a lot of momentum this year."
She said that 10 vendors have signed up to be a part of the event this year.
“That includes a mix of activities and goods for sale,” she said.
Face painting will be available along with products for sale and food.
“In addition to the three food trucks that the carnival brings full of carnival food, we’ll also have some food trucks there with Caribbean cuisine, biscotti, and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels as well,” said Stickles. “There is a lot of food choices."
Auntie Anne’s Pretzels is also the main sponsor of the carnival this year.
