Grand Carnivale (WOF)


Welcome to Grand Carnivale at Worlds of Fun

Some decorations around the Gateway Gardens area

The headquarters for the festival.  You can enter the scavenger hunt here and get bubble wands and your tasting passes as well

There are four speciality carnival games this year

They are all located near the Tivoli Theater.  Crafts this year have moved inside the Tivoli Theater at the counter inside the 50th Museum

Germany pavilion is next to the Scandinavia restrooms

Here is the Germany mascot for the scavenger hunt

France pavilion is next to Viking Voyager

The France mascot is on the side of the candy store

India did not have a tasting booth this year but still had decorations between Gateway Gifts and candy store

The India mascot is behind Gateway Gifts

The Italy pavilion is actually inside Gateway Pizza this year.  The mascot is next to the entrance

Interesting move on their part - and yes they still serve the normal menu too

Spain pavilion is hid at the back of the dining patio for Gateway Pizza.  Mascot there on the tent

China pavilion has taken over Pagoda Nachos in the East Asia section

China mascot is over by the entrance to the gift shop

Fun photo op near the East Asia restrooms

Giant masks on the fence between East Asia and Americana

Giant figurine near Goldrush Pizza

The hot air balloon has returned again this season.
Such a cool sight to see during the festival
