It is carnival time here. There is one somewhere close by every week of the summer. My dd usually attends two of them during the summer mainly to hang out with friends.

 YES.  Absolutely and they love rides and being around all the extra people. Every year there is one only 2 blocks from our house for a whole weekend and they love that.

Yes but they do know what a rip off they can be. So they don't play the fixed games and usually just hang out and ride a few rides.

Heck yea, they love that excitment, I know I did when I was younger, Today for some reason I even look at a ride i get ill. when I was  teen you couldn't keep me off of a roller coaster, but after I had my first child at 22 you would have to knock me out to even get me on the merry-go-round...lol but this is true.

Quoting momOfTeens040:

 yep...with their friends...

they go to the "derby" & "tractor & truck" pull

i like to see the animals & all the 4-H exhibits...

not this year...me & 2 of the boys will be in Washington DC

ohhh! What's on your agenda?

I was in DC with my 8 y/o son for his fieldtrip this year. We went to the air and space Museum and Museum of Natural History.

On the way down as we were heading into the city the kids were all ohhing and ahhing at everything they were seeing and we had to crack up when one of the kids yelled "There's a taxi" and all the other kids were like where and snapping pictures of it. Yep, we are country folk! LOL!

I'm the same way! I don't like wild rides anymore.

This is so true. When I go I play ski ball and throw the dart at the balloon games anything that requires skill, forget it!

My son does.  It's a big thing up in Jersey.  Down here, not so much.  We don't really have them like they do up north.
