Carnival Week

Welcome to Carnival Week here at OPOD. We will look at the old time tradition of traveling carnivals. Yes, I have been to the big theme parks like Disney Land, but to me they are just not the same as the small traveling carnival coming to town. Hopefully you all will share your fond childhood memories of the carnival.


  1. I never cared much for the rides, the things I always liked were the food stands and trying to win your girl a teddy bear at the games of chance.

  2. I loved the carnivals that came to our central Iowa town. I have great memories of going with my Dad - back in the days when cotton candy was made in front of your eyes and still was an acceptable food. I'm looking forward to the posts!

  3. Never saw this ride before. I run a historic amusement park flat ride board on facebook and this would get some great posts. Thanks for sharing this photo.
