Pictures are taken two weeks before the Carnival begins.  (February 29, 2016, 4:00 p.m.) There are a limited number of passports. Get yours early!!

Who can buy a Passport to Fun?
    Adults and children can purchase a Passport to Fun, however, you must meet the height and safety requirements for each ride.

How do I purchase a Passport to Fun?
    
Passports can be purchased at the Heritage Festival Office, 1523 Boston (across from the Windmill) in Nederland.  You will be given a voucher when you purchase a Passport. Do not lose that voucher!!  It is your proof that you have paid for a Passport to Fun! We take Mastercard, Visa and Discover!!

When and where do I have the picture taken? 
    
About two weeks before the Carnival begins bring your voucher to the Heritage Festival Office, 1523 Boston.  Pictures will be taken in the back of the Pavilion after school.  Check the front of your voucher for exact dates and times.

What are the rules for owning a Passport to Fun?        
The NHF Passport to Fun photo ID will admit the holder to the NHF carnival rides during carnival hours the entire 6 days of the festival.
