Valleyfair has always been at the forefront of bringing AWESOME new traditions to Minnesota, but in 2020 we will top them all! On select days during the summer of 2020, Valleyfair guests can see, hear and experience how the world kicks up its heels at Grand Carnivale, a larger-than-life cultural celebration with something for everyone.
Immerse yourself in the electrifying vibe of our Spectacle of Color Parade, a prismatic procession that reflects joyous cultural traditions from around the globe. A fanciful fusion of extravagantly decorated floats, mesmerizing street performers and pulsing rhythms, this parade promises to enchant and delight — especially as the day slips into night and the sky radiates with a dazzling array of lights that takes on a life of its own.
I'm not what one would call "shocked," but I am excited to experience the event and after sitting out on visiting the park this year, I will be going during Grand Carnivale. Social media will explode at no new ride, so start popping that corn now, boys!

Now what route will the parade take?
Literally one post later...

Don't you just love coaster enthusiasts? They're such a grateful bunch.
I'M SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW!!! (dripping with sarcasm) CANT WAIT TO USE MY REFRESHED SEASON PASS FOR 2020 TO SEE A PARADE!!! (dripping with sarcasm) ESPECIALLY SINCE THE PARK CLOSES AT 9 PM MOST NIGHTS NEGATING THE FLASHY NEW LIGHTS!!! (Yes, you can see the sarcasm) And Yes, I'm one of those enthusiasts who are clearly and completely disappointed. I mean that whole thing can't be over $500,000. The only saving grace I have in this is the hope that once again they are saving up to finally take advantage of the permit to extend the berm in the back of the park. They may even announce something more in the coming weeks but then again this is Valleyfair.
