Brown’s Carnival kicks off at Moffat County Fairgrounds
Brown’s Carnival opened its gates for fun on Thursday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds. The annual carnival coincides with one of Craig’s biggest hootenannies: Grand Olde West Days.
While all-day wristbands will be available at the gates for $30, the pre-sale tickets sold out Wednesday morning, said Rebekah Greenwood, executive assistant at the Craig Chamber of Commerce. People who might only want to take a couple rides can pay $1 for tickets and each ride takes about three to four tickets per ride.
“We’ve been selling out earlier and earlier every year,” Greenwood said.

The complaints from constituents and policy advocates are aimed at the Marijuana Tax Cash Fund, a depository for about half of the $272 million the state is expected to generate this fiscal year from marijuana-related taxes. The legislature has guidelines for how the money should be spent, but lawmakers can use it for just about anything they want. And in practice, they do, splitting the money among dozens of different programs, across more than a dozen state agencies.
