Noon Lions’ Club brings the carnival to town

DUNCAN — The Duncan Noon Lions’ Club is bringing the carnival to town.

Rides and a concession stand await for all those who plan to attend, with one ride costing $3, nine rides costing $25 and 25 rides valued at $60. The carnival start at 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Joe Lujan, owner of Great Plains Amusement, is in charge of the carnival and said the carnival will be open until the crowds thin out each night. Great Plains Amusement is based out of Rush Springs.

Lujan has been involved in the carnival for more than two decades.

Lujan said the rides this year will include a tilt-a-whirl, the Spider, the Patriot, the Sizzler and a ferris wheel.

“The ferris wheel this year is bigger than the one we normally have,” Lujan said.

For smaller kids, Lujan said they have a merry-go-round, a small roller coaster and a big slide.

Eric Davis, President of Duncan Noon Lions’ Club, said proceeds from the event will go to Duncan Noon Lions’ Club’s scholarships.

“We sponsor it and get a percentage of the proceeds to put toward scholarships to the high school and technology center,” Davis said. “So people should come out and support the Lions’ Club at the carnival.”

The carnival will also contain a concession stand with food and drinks.
