A carnival full of wildlife!
Green Valley Park in Payson will undergo a transformation when its grassy expanses turn into a carnival full of wildlife and hands-on outdoor activities for all.
Parents and kids can fish, play games, and get a close-up look at wildlife, including birds of prey, rattlesnakes, Gila monsters and alligators. There will be booths from a variety of conservation groups and Green Valley Lake will receive more than double its usual stocking of trout in preparation for this event. No fishing license is required for fair attendees and equipment and bait can be borrowed from the free fishing booth at the fair.
