Music, carnival rides, shopping, games and fun for the whole family — all of it can be found this weekend at MayFest 2018 in Marble Falls, which continues to midnight Saturday at Johnson Park, 230 Avenue J in Marble Falls.

The MayFest Carnival is a large draw each year and brings out fans of people who love rolling, spinning, whirling, playing games of fun and chance and eating all of the great food on the midway. The fun at the Carnival begins at 5 p.m. and continues to midnight both Friday and Saturday nights.

Market vendors are also open for shopping at the same time as the carnival with a variety of crafts and goods available for purchase.

Friday, May 11, is also Tejano music night and will feature a free concert with Rey Avila y Sus Legitimos Del Norte from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
