Once again, Windy City Amusements will be providing the carnival rides for the community festival. While the Oswegoland Park District with other village entities makes sure all rides go through a formal amusement ride inspection, Windy City determines price, carnival staffing, and ride selection. We are pleased to have the carnival back at PrairieFest Park. Windy City Amusements has been our PrairieFest carnival for over 30 years!
