Carnivals and Fairs

As the end of summer approaches, carnivals and fairs are on their way. Cotton Candy, lollipops, Ferris Wheels and balloons are all images that come to mind at the thought of a fair. 
Most people get a little giddy when arriving at a carnival (even the adults recalling their childhood). Bright lights, lots of colors and the sound of games being played. Prizes are enevitable one way or another, whether it's a huge stuffed animal or some sort of tsotska.

Eating at the fair is always fun. Greasy hot dogs slathered in ketchup, mustard and relish or blue and pink cotton candy adhered to children's moist fingertips, the sugary goodness melting away in their mouths.

Ballons are always my highlight, especially when they are in pastel hues and oh, they are so photogenic. 
Overall carnivals are fun and harmless, except perhaps for your stomach which might feel a little funny after all the sugar, food and rides!
