Monkey Business

Carnivals are a great place to play games. In many ways it’s like Las Vegas. You know the house is stacked to win, but you play anyway. Vegas has the new car in the middle of the casino, while the carnival has the large stuffed animals to entice you.  One has flashing lights and liquor, while the other has flashing lights and funnel cakes. They both let just enough people win to tease others to keep playing. They’re really very much the same, except for the amount of admission and the winnings do vary a bit. Either way, you go for the fun, not expecting to carry home an overstuffed animal or drive home that new car.

In case you missed them, here are a few other shots from local carnivals.
