T he annual N.C. Pickle Festival will once again offer two days of popular carnival rides in the downtown area of Mount Olive. Brinkley Entertainment, based in Walnut Cove, will bring back the most popular rides from previous festivals to the carnival area, in the Steele Memorial Library parking lot, at the corner of Main and Chestnut streets. "They've been coming to the Pickle Festival for 24 or 25 years," said Julie Beck, festival co-chair and president of the Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce. "They've been with us a long time." The company selects its best rides for the festival, with a new ride expected this year that will be located on the street, Beck said. The different rides haven't been announced by the company, but the popular helicopter rescue ride and the 35-foot-high, 100-foot-long Super Slide are expected to return. "That's probably the most popular ride," Beck said of the large slide. Other rides the company could bring include the motorcycle jump, bouncy cas- tle and berry-go-round. 12 — Mount Olive Messenger Wednesday, April 25, 2018 WILD RIDES There will be carnival rides for all ages during the N.C.
