This is a continuation from the photos I took at "Septemberfest" over Labor Day Weekend in our town. There were 250 craft vendors, carnival rides, food, entertainment, bingo, and fireworks. It drew quite a crowd.
I used to like to ride the Ferris Wheel when I was young, but now it scares the bejesus out of me. I hate when the seats rock, and if you are with a particularly sadistic person who KNOWS you are afraid of the rocking, it is even worse. Just saying. By the way, did you know that the first Ferris wheel was designed as a landmark by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago? The term "ferris wheel" has been used generically for all structures. (Wikipedia)
Baby wheel (more my size!)
All those flags in a row, on top of the Fantasy Faire, where you can get all the junk food you desire!
Unsuspecting victims before the ride started.
Just TRY to knock me over! (Nearly impossible - have you EVER seen anyone win?)
Not sure WHY this individual has so many balloons, as he was leaving the festival. Later I saw another person walking home with a huge bundle of balloons. Could they have been prizes? Why would anyone buy so many balloons?
And finally, these toys best describe how the weather was on the second day that we attended the festival!
Do you have anything fun this week?
