Let the kiddos have some fun at Eastland Mall, where the parking lot will be transformed into a carnival.

Fair season is almost upon us in the Evansville area. If your kiddos can't wait to hop onto carnival rides, try their hand at carnival games, and indulge in delicious fair food, you don't have to wait until the county fairs in the area open up. In fact, you'll have the chance to experience all of that this week when a carnival takes over Eastland Mall.

The carnival will be in the parking lot of the Eastland Mall. I know what you're thinking, the parking lot is full enough as it is, especially on the weekend. While you might have to change up where you typically park when going to Eastland Mall, it will all be worth it with all of the fun that will be going on in the parking lot. Let's take a look at what all you can expect at the Evansville Fair.
