Stricker’s Grove is kind of like a mini Kings Island, only more focused on nostalgic rides and exclusive to renters during most of the year. But on Sunday, Stricker’s Grove holds a “family day” that allows everyone to visit the private amusement park. A Ferris wheel, flying Dumbo the Elephant ride, Electric Rainbow tilt-a-whirl, a retro helicopter ride, two old-fashioned roller coasters — the Tornado and the Teddy Bear — along with other classic rides for all ages (plus a miniature golf course, videogame arcade and baseball diamond) make the fun-land stand out from others in Hamilton County. The park is only open to the public four times a year, so take advantage of this festival miracle while you can.
1-9 p.m. Sunday. $12. Stricker’s Grove, 11490 Hamilton-Cleves Road, Hamilton, strickersgrove.com.
