OUT WITH THE OLD:

Back in 2020, the Victoria Livestock Show Committee made a change! They switched their carnival entertainment from Reed Exposition Midway to Pride of Texas Shows.  That changed the vibe of the carnival immediately!  If you remember going to the carnival at any point back in the day. You probably remember unkept 'carnies', rides being held together by duct tape, and just an overall dirty feeling. I am pretty sure I wasn't the only one that felt that way.

NEW VIBES:

The Pride of Texas Shows offers crips, clean, and very colorful rides. All the 'carnies' wear the same uniforms and are friendly. The overall presentation of the carnival is clean when it comes to the cable management and overall spacing of the grounds.  The 2022 Victoria Livestock Show Carnival will run from Thursday, February 17th- to Sunday, February 27th. Livestock Show festivities will kick off with the parade on Saturday, February 12th in Downtown Victoria.  Click to see the full Livestock show schedule.  Take a look at the photos of the ACTUAL rides that will be set up here in Victoria. Notice how colorful and clean they are  [PHOTOS]

NO-LIMIT: This is a premium ride and will require additional tickets even if you have a wristband.  On a side note, there is a weight limit, which I went over. I was denied entry to this ride.

THE PUPPY ROLL: The Puppy Roll is a family ride. It has a double circular motion. I have actually gotten sick from spinning too much on this one.

ALIEN ABDUCTION: Most of us grew up with the name the 'Gravitron' Riders experience the feeling of weightlessness as they are pressed against the wall. I can still handle this one.
