So Chamber Board, Steering Committee members, alumni and community volunteers are being sought to help with the event.
Carnival Tickets will go on sale the week before the event, tentatively that will be April 28th. The Chamber office, Recreation Dept., and Circle K will also have carnival tickets on sale.
The theme this year is "Embrace Diversity and Dance", so put on your dancing shoes and come out to a fun-filled weekend at Rose Ann Vuich Park. May 4th Carnival starts at 4 pm. May 5th Carnival, Vendors, and Entertainment begin at 4 pm and go until 10 pm. May 6th the Parade begins at 10 am in downtown Dinuba, and the Carnival and Vendors open after the parade with entertainment starting at noon. The fun continues until 10 pm. Sunday the Carnival runs from 12 -10 pm.
