I stopped by the Apache Mall yesterday to shop for some clothes, and on my way out, my kids noticed some carnival rides parked in the lot. I didn't think too much about them because I immediately thought they must be for Rochesterfest which is happening this week. I saw a lot of people asking about the rides on Facebook last night so I decided to investigate a little more.

After a quick Google search, I learned the rides aren't connected to RochesterFest at all.  The Apache Mall is hosting a carnival this weekend. Get more info including when the rides will be open and how much they'll cost you below.
