[EVENT] The Summer Sunset Carnival (Aug 21st - Sept 4th)

Excitement is in the air. Literally—the cheerful rising and falling melodies of a calliope grow louder and louder, trumpeting the arrival of the Summer Sunset Carnival!

One by one, the tents and booths are unfurled and hoisted, colorful pennants strung betwixt their striped awnings. Rides of all sorts—from the cheerful carousel with its colorful menagerie of mounts, to the spinning nightmare that is the Scrambler, to the towering Ferris wheel—are erected seemingly overnight. Blinking lights; musical mayhem; the lingering smell of fryer oil—what was just yesterday a sleepy empty lot has transformed into a playground for Mycenians of all ages.

The fliers that have been posted around town with almost obnoxious frequency provide all the necessary details:

The Summer Sunset Carnival!

In town for two weeks only!
Gates open at 12:00 ST on August 21st!

Fun, Games, Prizes!!!

You can now buy Carnival Tickets with gems!

This is an option we’ve offered in previous events, though with the prize shop being managed manually this time around, the process looks a bit different! You can find the full details in the Prize Booth thread.

As always, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have! You can either post them here, or echo Crow!

Hey! Wasn’t sure who to talk to, but I seem to have missed credit for one of my Creative Cartomancy submissions. I did two. Here are the links:

The Emperor’s Pardon
The Next Big Score

Hey, I can’t see the sticker for the carnival.

Not staff, but I think I know the answer - it looks like you only did the two games (ie the balloon pop and the duck race) but in order to get the participation sticker you needed to participate in two of the creative activities, which the games didn’t count for unfortunately!
