The summer season is coming to a close. The temperature dropped last night and it was already below 50 degrees this morning. Even though we might see temps in the low 8s this weekend, we know what's coming.

Fall officially starts on Monday, September 23. However, we're not quite ready to say goodbye to summer activities on the SouthCoast, such as carnivals. Luckily, the Dartmouth Mall is bringing this beloved fair back to their parking lot later this month.

The Fall Carnival at Dartmouth Mall will be hosted by Fiesta Shows and take place from Thursday, September 26 to Sunday, September 29.

With rides for everyone from the little ones to the thrill-seekers, plus plenty of carnival games and yummy treats, the whole family is invited to come to check out the festivities! - Beth Zager, Dartmouth Mall Marketing Director

Carnival attendees can purchase a special one-day wristband for $30 per person, which is good for unlimited rides on Thursday or Sunday. Regular tickets are also available. Ticket prices are $1.25 per ticket and a sheet of 20 tickets is $25. Or you can purchase 55 tickets for $50. Rides take between two and five tickets each.

Fiesta Shows is bringing sixteen carnival rides, six games, and three food wagons to keep you and your family entertained for hours.

Here is the schedule for all four days, although rain will call for closing:
Thursday, September 26 from 6 to 10:30 pm.
Friday, September 27 from 6 to 11 pm
Saturday, September 28 from 1 to 11 pm
Sunday, September 29 from 1 to 9 pm

The carnival will be located in the parking lot near the Sear Auto Center.
