Who foots the bill for post-carnival cleanup at Hastings Park? Will the park become the annual Fourth of July carnival’s new home? You ask, Patch answers.
Over the past few days, a few followers of Lexington Patch have asked about post-carnival cleanup at Hastings Park and whether the carnival will continue to call Hastings home moving forward. The Short Answers: A Little Bit Longer Now Due to ongoing renovations and repairs to playing fields, the Lexington Lions Club’s annual Fourth of July Carnival this year relocated to Hastings Park from is previous location by the Center Fields across Worthen Road. The configuration and size of the carnival were altered slightly, but, for the most part, the arrangements were the same. Which means the Lions Club, as has been the case in the past, is financially responsible for any repairs and/or rehab for the grounds occupied by the carnival. (Yes, like …

The Lexington Lions Club's annual Fourth of July Carnival opens at 6 p.m. today, July 3, but the equipment arrived Sunday took shape on Monday at Hastings Park.
Autobots they are not, but carnival rides came together pretty quickly on Monday, July 2, as Hastings Park transformed into the Lexington Lions Club's 56th annual Fourth of July Carnival. The carnival, which runs through this Saturday, July 7, will be slightly smaller than in years past, a result of its relocation across Worthen Road due to fields work at the Center Recreation Complex. However, a Fiesta Shows rep on-site Monday said the workers and rides were adapting well to the new digs. It's unclear exactly which rides or attractions were lost to the relocation, but many popular rides have returned from past years, including Freak Out, Vertigo, Tilt-a-Whirl and, of course, the carousel. Notably absent will be the Ferris wheel, which …

Fireworks, field games, rides and more.

According to plans presented earlier this month, the carnival will be largely the same as it’s been in the past, although slightly smaller due to the plot and configuration of the Hastings Park site. Setup is scheduled to begin on Sunday, July 1, with the carnival’s opening slated for the evening of Tuesday, July 3. The Bicentennial Band will play on opening day, and fireworks are planned for Thursday, July 5, as well as an early opening that day …
