MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The Family Fun Shows began in 1996 and the carnival has set up shop in Mankato every Memorial Day weekend for about 25 years.
Now in the River Hills Mall parking lot, the Family Fun Show strives to be affordable, safe and fun.
Owners Greg and Gail Hughes are able to keep all rides at the show affordable at one ticket per ride, thanks to community support.
“And that’s about half the price of most shows and the reason we can do that is from sponsors right here in Mankato are sponsoring our show to keep all the rides at one ticket a ride,” said co-owner, Greg Hughes.
The show will go on until March 27 at 6 p.m.
