DANVILLE – The 2015 Danville-Howard Turkey Festival, June 17-20, brings a sight never before seen in Knox County. Five giant inflatable rides and games from the Cincinnati Circus will provide hours of fun for kids of all ages!

Jump ship and slide into the deep blue on the two-story Kraken. Standing 25-feet tall, this monster of a slide will give you the ride of your life. Race through 100-feet of challenging track on the Wild One Obstacle Course. Try to beat your own time record or go head-to-head against a friend! Test your balance, strength, and perseverance on the 15-foot Jacob’s Ladder, or challenge an opponent to a friendly duel at the Joust. How long will be able to stand on your pedestal while trying to knock down your rival with an oversized foam pole? For slightly tamer amusement, give the Bounce & Slide Castle a whirl. Kiddie Land returns to offer endless fun for even the youngest crowd.
