In addition to the typical E.K. Fernandez shows, the Maui County Carnival will feature two amusement rides never before seen on Maui — the Techno Power and Safari Train.

The carnival will also feature some entertainment and attractions that have appeared at the 50th State Fair including: Hedrick’s Racing Pigs; and The Anastasini Circus Show featuring Giovanni Anastasini (Comedy Diabolo), Karoly & Ana (Roller Skating Duo) and Sergio & Martha (Dancing Gauchos).

Maui coordinator Sherri Grimes said the Maui County Carnival’s arrival in April is a “debut” and says organizers plan to make it an annual event.

“Maui will remember Little League Carnival which went on for three years, ending in 2006.  Prior to that they mainly remember Jaycee Carnival, which ended in 1997.  The Maui County Carnival will be a new presentation but people will best relate to it from these past events,” said Grimes.
