Sixth annual Vallejo Spring Carnival at the waterfront starting today, rain or shine

It's six years and counting for the Butler Amusements Vallejo Spring Carnival, which runs Thursday through Sunday along the waterfront, inclement weather or not.

Spokesman Michael Gorman said there are a few new attractions this year, including rides called the Ring of Fire, Energy Storm and Bear Affair, "a child's ride that twirls as it goes around."

The merry-go-round is also new, and "it's a beautiful thing, a work of art," created by Chance Manufacturing of Wichita, Kan., Gorman said.

Returning this year, are "the always popular Ferris wheel, the ever popular Zipper; people just love that ride," he said. "The Viper is returning, and kids love the giant slide which is also back."

The Vallejo carnival is one of 139 events Butler produces annually, including 37 state and county fairs like the Solano County Fair and Cal Expo, the California State Fair in Sacramento, Gorman said.

"We also do the Marin and Alameda County Fairs," he said.

At least 5,000 people attended the Vallejo waterfront carnival last year, and company officials expect even more this year, although uncooperative weather could put a damper on that, Gorman said.

Some rain is expected today and Saturday, and a thunderstorm is possible Sunday, according to weather reports. Friday is expected to be mostly sunny and about 70, while the other days are predicted to top out at the mid-to-high 60s.

The carnival will run 4 to 10 p.m. today, 4 to 11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.

A $2 entry fee applies to anyone over 36 inches tall, although anyone that height and under is free. Individual ride tickets are $1, and each ride takes $3 or $5 worth. An unlimited ride, day-long wristband is $25.
