The Star Carnival is a carnival happening once a year. Its only appearance thus far is in Mario Party 8. Mario, Luigi and all their friends come to their carnival in the game. MC Ballyhoo and his hat, Big Top are the hosts of the carnival. All of the tents and buildings in the fair are entrances to the party and minigames. Each time the player starts the file, Ballyhoo will fly up to the screen and welcome the player to the Star Carnival, after which they will be presented with the main menu.
