Enjoy World Foods, Fireworks, And The Thrills at Worlds of Fun
Experience the world's music and culture and enjoy all the thrills, chills, and coasters at Worlds of Fun Grand Carnivale through Sunday, August 7.
Worlds of Fun's Grand Carnivale is their yearly celebration of how different cultures kick up their heels through music, food, games, and crafts. The centerpiece of the day-to-night festival is the parade:
Take in the extravagant sights and sounds of our nighttime Spectacle of Color Parade, a glittering sensory spectacular of lavish floats, interactive street performers and pulsing rhythms. As the parade concludes, thunderous music builds to a crescendo and our King and Queen kick off a high-energy block party filled with animated entertainers, spirited dancing, scrumptious eats and so much more.
Festival goers can also create their own dazzling crowns, flowering lei, or noise maker in the craft area. Put your skills to the test in Mardi's Games Gallery, and dance to the Queen's favorite hits throughout the celebration. Plus, every evening at the end of the festival is a spectacular light and fireworks show.
Food is an important part of the festival as well. You can sample some of the world's great eats from China, India, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. For example, Asain Style Banana Fritters with caramel sauce and sesame seeds. Or Calamari De Ajo fried and tossed in garlic oil and sliced peppadews.
Tasting cards for the event start at $39.99 and a Grand Carnivale Bundle which includes park admission, parking, and food tastings starts at $56.99. For complete information on the festival, you can check out the Worlds of Fun website.
