The carnival is coming to Wood River. For nine straight days, there will be rides, games, and carnival food on the parking lot of the former Jack Schmitt Chevrolet location, now home to StorCo Self Storage.

In fact, Wood River Park and Recreation Director Jason Woody tells The Big Z the storage company is the reason the carnival will be in town next month, as they secured the carnival for their grand opening.
