The carnival that arrived at The Apache Mall last year is back just in time for Memorial Day Weekend.

What's The Plan, Stan?

First of all, great news that it isn't during Rochesterfest. Second, fresh from a Mother's Day Weekend in St. Cloud, and a weekend in Blaine, Minnesota, Gopher State Expositions is bringing the carnival to Rochester's Apache Mall starting May 26th!
