By Keith Malone // April 30, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE , FLORIDA – Some of the highest and longest leaps a motorcycle can make will be seen at the 2012 INDIAN RIVER FESTIVAL this week – as motocross performers leave the Space Coast Seafood Festival site in Viera and move the short distance up the coast to Titusville.
“Mad” Mike Jones entertained the crowds this weekend with death-defying stunts at Space Coast Stadium – and he’ll be leading the performance again this weekend as the Indian River Festival comes to Sandpoint Park.
The Indian River Festival opens this Thursday – and once again there will be SINGLE LOW ADMISSION of just $10 or $12 giving UNLIMITED RIDES on the midway.
Organizers of this spring’s fun-packed 37th annual Indian River Festival have revealed to Space Coast Daily.com that prices have once again been reduced for this week’s popular May-time event – in order to make it more affordable for Brevard families during these tough economic times.
Single Low Admission With Unlimited Rides
In previous years at the Indian River Festival, there was always an admission charge of $5 PLUS a charge for an unlimited ride armband of up to $20 each – making it a total potential cost of $25 per person.
But for this year’s event from May 3- 6, everyone can enjoy the festival AND UNLIMITED RIDES for one low price of ONLY $10 or $12 per person, depending on what day they visit.
The Indian River Festival is a Brevard County celebration and tradition dating back to the 1970s. The festival grounds are located at Sandpoint Park, on a lovely 20-acre site along the beautiful Indian River Lagoon directly across from Kennedy Space Center.
The festival kicks off Thursday, May 3 with a Coca-Cola Grand Opening, offering free entertainment and free unlimited rides for only $10 admission.

The schedule includes live musical entertainment performances, State Fair quality carnival games and rides, an open-air business showcase, arts and crafts artisans, ethnic foods, military displays and a Family Fun Zone.
