Why's the carnival in Baker City this weekend?

Why’s the carnival in Baker City?

Well, it wasn’t planned this way.

What happened, said Baker County Fair Manager Angie Turner, is that Paradise Amusements, which operates the carnival, is traveling from a show last weekend in Idaho, to another scheduled for next weekend in Selah, Wash.

“They basically have a dead weekend,” Turner said.

Officials from the company, which has put on carnivals at the Fairgrounds for the past several years, asked Turner if the space at the corner of D and Grove streets was available during Memorial Day weekend.

It was, and Turner rented the 5-acre property to the company for $1,000.

She’s not sure whether the carnival will end on Sunday, or continue into Monday.

Either way, Paradise Amusements will be returning for Miners Jubilee in July, Turner said.

That carnival, unlike this weekend’s version, was already on Paradise Amusement’s schedule.
