Who will be most interested in a carnival event?
You can target any demographic with your event. For example, if your event benefits people with disabilities, you might specifically choose very accessible rides. This will bring in a larger crowd of families with members who use wheelchairs and other assistive devices. Additionally, this sort of focus might draw families with small children as being a safer and more accessible event.
If your event benefits senior citizens, you might specifically select old-fashioned, nostalgic, rather sedate rides that seniors can enjoy with their grown children and/or their grandchildren. When you stage your own carnival, you can make it very personalized and closely themed to suit your audience.
