The Sulphur Springs Stew Fest begins preparations with the arrival of the carnival on the SSHS campus. The carnival is due to open on October 22, with today being the last day to purchase wristbands at a discount price. To purchase a wristband for unlimited rides at the Carnival will cost $25 as opposed to the $20 at Super Handy stores and local banks. The carnival will be right along side both the Fall Festival and the Stew Cook-Off, earning the name “Stew Fest”. The carnival will last from Wednesday to Sunday, being open all day.
