It's open tomorrow from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Bear Down Field (located directly north of the scoreboard at Arizona Stadium). The carnival is highlighted by games run by UA student athletes and demonstrations for kids. The UA athletic department along with the sports marketing association is offering a special group ticket discount for the football game. Tickets are available for $6 per person and includes a free hot dog and lemonade redeemable at the Kids Carnival. The minimum purchase is 15 tickets, and all ages are eligible.
An extra 6,000 fans are expected to attend tomorrow night's football game against San Diego State for the sole purpose of watching the halftime show. The Arizona basketball team is receiving their rings for being the 1997 National Champions.
"We have one ring," Arizona forward Eugene Edgerson said. "Let's go out and get another."
All of the players and coaches are expected to attend the ceremony.
Student tickets can be had for $6.The next chance to see the team will be at the team's Midnight Madness practice session on Oct. 17.
