Students and their families enjoyed the 51st school carnival at Tamarack Elementary in Owensboro.
Organizers say the funds raised from this year's event will go toward technology upgrades in the classroom.
The children tell us the best part of the carnival is riding the rides.
"I like the ride where it goes straight up... the rocket ride... cause it's fast and it goes up high," said Ethan Lippert, Owensboro.
The carnival continues on Saturday. Rides will start running at noon.
