Sweet Corn Festival to host special carnival promotions

MENDOTA – Windy City Amusements of St. Charles will be setting up on the midway again this year at Mendota’s Annual Sweet Corn Festival.

The carnival will be bringing 21 rides to the midway that should please children of all ages. For the little ones there is the “Balloon Race” and the “Dizzy Dragons,” and for the older kids and adults, “Sky Rider” and “Freak Out” to name just a few. For the whole family is the “Big Wheel,” a very large Ferris Wheel with gondola cars.”

Not only will the carnival be bringing exciting rides to Mendota, but it is offering a host of special promotions. The popular Mega Pass will be offered again this year. The Mega Pass will let you ride everyday Aug. 11-14, as many rides as you want, as many times as you want. The cost of the Mega Pass is $75 if purchased before Aug. 11 at noon.  Mega Passes can be purchased at the Mendota Chamber office or at WindyCityAmusements.com.  After the Aug. 11 deadline, the price will be $90, and will be available at the carnival ticket booth.

“You will be able to ride the entire Sweet Corn Festival from 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14 for only $18.75 per day,” stated Shelby Weide, Mendota Chamber Director.
