Boiling Springs Spring Fest 2013

 Yesterday I went to pick up my fiancee Daisy in the town she lives at and right near her house I noticed a carnival right next to the local library. Apparently Boiling Springs, SC has two of these carnivals every year (and they do a terrible job getting the word out) and we missed the one last fall. When I saw they returned we went soon after they opened later that afternoon.
 It wasn't exactly the biggest carnival but it had all what you'd expect. Rides, games, food, and a few more. My brother and his girlfriend came with us, and he won his girlfriend Tiffany a stuffed animal monkey.
 Daisy and I did more rides than the games. One of my favorites is the bumper cars. Daisy got a little mad when I picked a car directly behind her. Then to her luck, the guy operating it said it didn't work and I had to pick another one. 
But we had fun, she did bump into me a good number of times.  
 And the classic merry-go-round, not exactly fun or thrilling but almost a ritual that one must ride when going to a carnival. At least to me anyway. We rode many other rides, including one called Musik Express which was my favorite. It's shaped in a circle with a bunch of box-cars that move in an almost wave-like motion and gets progressively faster. 
 Right before we left, my brother Zach and I competed in one of those water gun races. I lost by a nose. 
We had to leave a little early, but I'm hoping we can go by and catch the one in the fall. I hope we can go at night as I really want to ride the ferris wheel all lit up.

  3. Carnivals are fun! Looks like you had a great time. The water gun race is one of my favourite games, and I sometimes win when I play.

  4. Unhealthy food (which is just plain delicious) and rides that spin you so much that you hurl.
    Leaving room in your stomach for a couple of corn dogs.
    What more can you ask?
