We love carnivals. Although they were usually held in an outdoor space with no air conditioner, but we still like going to the carnival with all the food, the shows, the games, the free gifts, photo booths, and even the balloons. I especially love the ambiance in the carnivals where everyone seemed to be happy, relaxed, and full of laughter even though the weather was very hot. From church carnival, office, mall, to carnival coordinated by the community center, all we knew that we always had so much fun. Mostly they were free or even if we had to pay , they usually were very cheap and we got a lot more than what we had paid.
I’ve posted in this blog some of the carnivals that we’d attended, and when I sorted all the recent pictures that we’d been taking, I realized that there were still many pictures from the recent carnivals that we’ve attended that haven’t been posted in here. And here are the reasons why we love carnivals, from Children’s Day Carnival, Sports Day Carnival, to carnivals coordinated by the malls, office, and our community center.
This big boy still loves balloons and especially balloon sculptures. No wonder because balloons make everyone happy, am I rite?
Free gifts are always the best things to cheer up the children’s mood, and even adults, even though they are only small things that will be forgotten once they come home…………I have headache too of where I should keep those small gifts at home.
Who doesn’t like popcorn and candy floss??? We could find them in every carnival………….and sometimes plus ice cream too if we were lucky, and best of all………….they were free.
Most of all, carnivals must have games………..many games that can make everyone happy and tired at the same time. Well, adults may get tired, but I don’t think the kids will ever get tired, and this is the example:
but that’s not all………….because we sometimes found the big version of games that we already had at home such as these:
and not to forget: all the classical games that we can find in almost every carnival:
By the way, as far as I could remember, all those outdoor or indoor events that we’ve attended (and even the ones that I’ve posted before), were always accompanied by super hot weather…………..but still very crowded. I wonder why the rain never came in each carnival that we’ve attended?
Besides the games and the food and all the small gifts, we were still more than happy to bring home another souvenir from the carnival:

The boy also liked the carnival’s shows, from magic show, puppet show, dancing, singing, etc………..those all were very fun to watch. They were so entertaining and funny not for the kids, but also for adults. The boy also always tried to sit at the front whenever a show was about to start. He also liked to participate in quizzes and tried to win prizes. So far, we got vouchers, Jenga Game, and other things from participating in quizzes. Too bad we have never win in any lucky draws.
That was our carnivals story. Although we missed our church carnival at the end of the year because we went for holidays, but overall we still had so much fun attending many carnivals all this time. Hopefully there are more events to come in 2016 and we certainly cannot wait for them.
