When a carnival usually sets up in Victoria it usually brings a little rain with it. This means that carnivals in Victoria usually turn into a mud fest and a mess. That will not be the case this year with Big Texas Fun.  The carnival has set up in the parking lot area behind the Community Center Annex which means we will be able to enjoy a carnival without mud, even if it does rain!

Not only will the carnival not be muddy, but it also has a crisp and clean look with vibrant colorful rides.  There are also some great ride options that victoria has never seen before including a full-size roller-coaster. The Zillerator is one of the largest portable roller coasters in the country alongside many other great ride options.  The carnival kicks off today and will run through Sunday. All you can ride armbands are available today and tomorrow only!

YOU CAN'T FORGET THE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT:
