The great thing about carnivals is that they tend to be a bit more “intimate”. By that I mean they are usually run by a church, volunteer Fire Department or civic group. It’s truly a community event, and you spend as much time talking to friends and neighbors as you do enjoying the carnival. Because of who is running these carnivals, it’s even more important to attend these. Usually these are the primary fund raiser for these groups and organizations. This is where they make the extra money to do the community outreach programs. Or maybe it’s to buy or replace the equipment that was cut from the budget. Having fun, and doing good at the same time. Cool….
