Family Fun Fest Carnival is back the safe way


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Wiregrass area has always been known for festival fun.

Starting on September 30, until October 3, the Family Fun Fest Carnival is back for just that.

It will be held at the Wiregrass Commons Mall. With several new rides, Fun Fest has transformed the carnival to follow COVID guidelines.

This year, they are requiring masks, and all of the rides are spaced out. Instead, of being close together like usual, which will allow social distancing among residents.

It begins at 5 p.m. and will last until 9:30 p.m.

“Come out and enjoy the festival, we do this for you guys but think safety,” Marini said. “Let’s do remember that there is the whole COVID thing still going on, it is a very simple thing to wear your mask, sanitize your hands and be safe.”

It’s a $5 admission fee, kids five and under get in for free.
