When the Adult Swim Carnival came to town last year, folks could participate in ringtoss, get a Mooninite koozie, or spin the Metalocalypse-themed wheel of fortune and win a Squidbillies trucker cap emblazoned with Breathe If Youre Horny. In 2011, the carnival renamed The Ragbag of Jollification promises such exciting diversions as Convict Escape, Flunko and Balloonicorn Blowout. Yeah, they're generally the same as the cheese-ball games offered at a state fair, but theyre free. Capping off the hoo-ha: a performance by Clipse's Pusha-T, featuring DJ Rick Geez. Free as the breeze, it hits Eighth Street in Lawrence, between Massachusetts and New Hampshire, from 6 to 11 p.m.
