Parade to kick off Morningside Carnival Thursday evening

News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Crews setting up for the 69th Annual Morningside Days carnival enjoyed some great weather Wednesday night.

All of the carnival rides and booths are now set up in the Peter’s Park parking lot. The set up wasn’t all fun and games, as a renovation project nearby created some obstacles.

“This year was a little bit tougher because they’re re-doing the library, so we had some fencing issues to deal with and a little bit shorter on space but we managed to get all the rides in and after making a long trip we’re kind of pushed for time. But we’re in good shape here, the inspectors are out here today inspecting all the rides and electrical inspectors so we’re right on schedule,” Concessions Manager Dennis Bossman said.

The carnival begins right after the parade heads down Morning side avenue Thursday evening. The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The carnival runs through Sunday.
