Workers at the National Peanut Festival are busy setting up for this year's event.

Right now, all the rides are going into place.

About two months ago, workers came in and surveyed the land to get an idea of which ride should go where.

Last week, the rides started showing up at the gates.

This year, there are more than 60 rides.

Organizers say some of the rides are specific to the peanut festival.

“This year you're going to see a lot different and varied rides that you've never seen here at the peanut festival before because we have rides that no one else in America has. So we're really going to change the look of the fair,” said Richard Reithoffer of Reithoffer Shows.

The National Peanut Festival starts this Friday, gates open at 4 pm.
