Family Carnival Benefits Lower Cape Fear Hospice

Smokey Mountain Amusements presents a family carnival Wednesday, May 28 through Sunday, June 1 at the former Monkey Junction WalMart parking lot. Carnival hours are 5 to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 1 to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The carnival is fun for the whole family, featuring rides, games, a midway and food. Admission to the carnival is free; proceeds benefit Lower Cape Fear Hospice, a community-based, nonprofit organization providing health care and comfort to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones.

On Wednesday and Thursday you can purchase a wristband for $12 and ride all the rides for that day. Wristbands can also be purchased for Saturday or Sunday for the same price and it will be good from 1PM-6PM.
