The World’s Biggest Fish Fry does not lack things to do and see, however many of the events only last for one night or two. The Kissel Entertainment Carnival opens from 5-11 p.m. Tuesday at the Henry County Fairgrounds and keeps on going until the very end of Fish Fry week.
A staple memory of any great childhood, the carnival keeps its 5-11 p.m. hours on Wednesday and Thursday as well. It will then open early for weekend fun, going from 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. It is also the only event occurring on April 25, which is the final day of Fish Fry, and it will be open from 1-6 p.m.
On Tuesday, local students can get an armband to enter the carnival for $5 off with a coupon they will get at their school.
Wednesday night, armbands for unlimited access to all the carnival rides will be $20, then on Thursday people can buy a pass that gets 10 rides for $10.
The unlimited ride armbands return from noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday for the price of $20, but after 5 p.m. each ride requires separate tickets to get on.
On the final day of Fish Fry, the armbands will cost $15.
The carnival is brought by the Kissel Entertainment Co., which will bring spectacular rides, thrill rides, family rides, kiddie rides, Sillyville, game and food concessions and midway amenities accumulating to an amusement park-like atmosphere at the fairgrounds.
According to its website, Kissel Entertainment has had 70-plus years and four generations in the carnival industry. Kissel has had carnivals in Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio and Georgia in addition to Tennessee. It’s a full service midway provider, complete with rides, games and food.
