The carnival is coming back to town.

From Thursday, April 19, to Sunday, April 22, the vacant cannery grounds on Covell Boulevard will be transformed into a playground of rides, games and food, with all proceeds supporting a library technology upgrade at Emerson and Da Vinci junior high schools.

This year’s carnival features 17 rides for children, teens and adults, including the Zipper, Gravitron, Scrambler, Tilt and much more. The Century Wheel will once again dominate the landscape, providing riders with a view from 70 feet up in a Ferris wheel-type ride. This year the ride is equipped with new LED lights providing for a whole new light show.

A daily pass for unlimited rides is $20 and available for purchase at locations around town, including the Emerson front office, 2121 Calaveras Ave.; Fleet Feet, 615 Second St.; nestware, 207 F St.; the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St.; and Armadillo Music, 205 F St., with an additional $2.50 service charge.

Tickets also will be sold at the Farmers Market on Wednesday, Saturday and April 18.

Carnival ride coupons can be purchased on site at the carnival ticket box. Prices are $1 for individual coupons; $70 for 80 coupons. All rides require three to five coupons each.

Carnival hours are 4 to 10 p.m. Thursday, April 19; 4 to 11 p.m. Friday, April 20; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, April 21; and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 22.
