There are various ways in which you can do that. If you are looking for easy, profitable ideas, here are some that might be of help.

Make sure that the prize of the tickets is reasonable and that it correlates with the prizes.
faPhoto Booths

So, you can be assured that your stall will have a market at the carnival. Having a photo booth in Brisbane will interest all types of visitors of carnival, so the profits you make will be even higher. You can either create a photo booth yourself or hire one from a professional service. Make sure to decorate the stall to increase its appeal.
Game Stalls
People who visit carnivals look for entertainment. Although a photo booth in Brisbane is fun, you cannot keep taking pictures the entire day. This is why you need to have several game stalls at the carnival. There are so many games that you can choose from. Fish tank toss, balloon darts, spill the milk, basketball toss and tip the cat are some of them. Pick a game that needs fewer resources so that you can make good profits.
Puppet Show
A school carnival will definitely have small children as well. Make use of this situation and select them as your target market since little children are easy to attract. Moreover, you can present the show to a large number of kids at the same time which will enable you to serve more guests and thereby collect a lot of money.
