The Valentine's Day Carnival is an annual carnival held by Bikini Bottom on Valentine's Day. It first appears in "Valentine's Day" and also appears in "To Love a Patty" and "Breath of Fresh Squidward." It is near Mount Climb-up and Fall-off and is only held on Valentine's Day.

It is held on the pier at Goo Lagoon.


SpongeBob takes Patrick to this carnival in "Valentine's Day" to surprise him with the gift he and Sandy made for him: a Chocolate Balloon. However, a group of Chocolate Eating Scallops start going after the balloon and Sandy has to delay her arrival. As a result, Patrick's Valentine's Day gift is limited to a handshake from SpongeBob. Jealous from all the gifts SpongeBob gave to various people, Patrick goes on a rampage at the carnival and performs several villainous acts like ripping the costume off a guy dressed in a heart outfit, attempting to demolish a ride, and snatching a little girl's heart-shaped lollipop and eating it. However, he doesn't cause any serious destruction to its property, and eventually ends his rampage once Sandy arrives with the balloon.

It makes a second appearance in "To Love a Patty," in which SpongeBob takes Patty to the carnival during the montage of the song "I Can't Keep My Eyes Off of You."

It makes a cameo in "Breath of Fresh Squidward" where Squidward is shown having fun at it with SpongeBob and Patrick after becoming nice, due to being shocked by an electrical fence.
