This is the one tag and challenge that I always make a point of joining, and also look through the posts of others that join the challenge and seeing markets from all around the world.

For this weeks post, I am back at the Whaling City Festival following on from this post which was mainly focused on food stalls, this post focuses on the rides

Starting with this shot from the field in Buttonwood park looking at the fair, I had planned to go and get some night shot long exposures which I thought would have bene cool, but I found out this fair closes before dark, apparently because of some incidents at night in previous times the fair took place, so your stuck with more early morning shots before the fair opens

Off course I couldn't resist a shot looking up at the Ferris wheel, trying to remember the last time I rode a Ferris Wheel I think it was the EYE in London many years ago

been traumatized by the power of the propeller.

Everyone has memories of the carnival. At least old guys like me. I always liked the midway with the games and the barkers. Nice photos Tattoodjay. Happy Friday!

I never tried to ride a carousel. It seems like it's just for kids. And the ferris wheel? Omoooo that looks big! Is it moving real fast??

yes Carousels are more for children, and no the Ferris wheel moves at a reasonably slow speed

Good thing the ferris wheel moves on a slow speed. I recall a moment when I rode a Ferris wheel in a carnival. It was really fast and I ended up puking all the food I ate. 😄😁😫

never again... ahhaahha

Looks so pretty

So cool to see some of the rides today @tattoodjay 😊😎
The Ferris wheel shots are great. Who doesn’t like seeing them, as they remind one at childhood.
I wouldn’t go in there now though hehehe 🤭 I don’t like heights.

Thanks for sharing more from this fair. Happy Friday 👋🏻😊☀️

Nice festival venue with variety of toys, looks like for kids toys. Thank you.

Even though it was still closed so early in the morning, you still get that "fun" feeling by just looking at these

Thank you for sharing these photos with us!

More than enough fun fir me I cannot stand the crowds lol

Hahaha...I hear you😄👍!

Looks like I have to go on a Ferris wheel ride in the near future - I haven't done that in a very long time! Great pictures!

Me either I think my last ride on one was maybe 20 years ago

I recently walked around a similar amusement park early in the morning. And there were no visitors.

I know most people prefer when it’s busy not me I enjoy the quiet times


I like Ferris wheels... I tried it once, and it goes up and down. It is fun when you're on top and then you slowly descend. I never chanced being stopped while the wheel is right at 45 degree angle facing nothing! I wonder how that would be!

Doctors tell us there are over seven million people who are overweight.
Of course, those are only round figures.
