Sitting in between Crosstown Parkway, Bank, Vine, and Lake streets is Upjohn park, which will be transformed to a summer start off shindig. The carnival will be June 10th from 3pm-7pm and will have a wide variety of activities. Of course there will be food, drinks, music, and other forms of entertainment as well to provide summer fun for everyone.

There will be normal carnival games like ring toss, bean bag toss, Plinko, and more that have the option to win prizes, while there are some less traditional games and activities at this carnival as well. There will also be small carnival rides like merry go rounds, carousels, along with kickball games, slip n slides, etc. that will appeal to all ages. They haven't listed any of the food, drink, or other merchandise type of vendors will be available but expect a wide variety to choose from. Kalamazoo starting summer on a great note!
