That DERBY feeling is in the Air!!And Derby is for all of our Westside Communities to Celebrate together. We hope Avenal, Huron, Riverdale, Caruthers, Tranquility, Laton and anyone else who wants fantastic family fun will come be a part of the Tradition Memorial Weekend.

Going to send out a lot of reminders and updates over the next 24 hours of things that the Chamber has confirmed for Derby this year. I can’t tell you how excited we are to once again have it on Memorial Day Weekend and to bring back some of the ol’ traditions from yesteryears…

If you are in need of all day wristbands, below are a list of our Royalty Court Candidates. If you recognize one of the names and wish to support their efforts please reach out to them. They are all trying so hard at this. Unlimited Single-Day Wristbands are $29 in advance and $35 as soon as the Carnival begins at 12pm on Friday May 27th so save a few dollars and get yours early.** If you have OLD wristband vouchers, Butler will honor them with no upcharge. If you paid $25 last year and didn’t use it, you can use it this year! A great thing about Butler Amusements is that they hold events all over. If for some reason you buy one for Derby and a child gets sick and can’t use it- Anywhere Butler Amusements is (Fresno Fair, etc) you can use the voucher there as well. So get out and support our Royalty Candidates. This event pretty much funds your Chamber of Commerce for the year so your support makes Coalingafest, Christmas Gala, Mardi Gras, and everything else we do possible. We are here to support and promote local businesses and with all of your help we are going to do great things in our community for a very long time.

** Please Note: I still have not received the list of Rides from Butler Amusements yet with height requirements. I will post as soon as I have that. However I have been told by reliable sources that all of their rides require minimum 32″. I have not yet been able to confirm that with Butler.We DO have a completely separate vendor coming in. They were here for Mardi Gras. They will be bringing the Zippy Pets, Thomas the Train, Water Balls and Virtual Reality Roller Coasters all of which have no height requirements. These however are thru a vendor who will charge separately. The wristband vouchers will NOT be accepted on these 4 rides so if you have REALLY young or small kids, this may be the way you need to go.I am hoping Butler Amusements comes back with better news in the next day or so but I just want everyone to be aware. We brought in this separate vendor to make sure there was something for every age group.

Royalty Court Candidates (In NO particular Order)Please contact one of the parents if you are in need of a wristband or local businesses who are also selling the vouchers are also listed at the bottom. Thanks!
