The carnival features all new rides, plenty of food booths and lots of good entertainment.

Friday, the main act is DJ MC Reggie, hip hop artist with his own dancing stars. Sunday’s band is ‘Stone in Love,’ tribute band for Journey.
There’s plenty more activities. Saturday features a Chili Cook-off, sponsored by the Creve Coeur and Olivette Chamber of Commerce. A $1,000 prize goes to the grand prize winner.
Sunday, in Oak Estate subdivision, participants will take part in the annual 5K run and the family walk/run through Olivette. Jeff Wade, director of parks and recreation for Olivette has all the information: 314-991-1249 or go to the city’s festival website for all the details.
