What carnival day is complete without funnel cake fresh out of the fryer and covered in powdered sugar.
Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my face!
I love cotton candy and my favourtie game at the carnival is the one where you have a water gun aiming at a clown face to fill up a ballon – so fun!

My favorite ride is the mixer.
Thanks for the giveaway; I’m already an e-mail subscriber. I’ve been wanting to read How It Happened in Peach Hill since I saw it in your catalog.
My favorite carnival ride is the carousel, and my fave food is deep-fried snickers 🙂 AMAZING!! lol
OK, now I want a funnel cake after everyone mentioned it! I love those tiny tom doughnuts at the EX, funnel cake at Wonderland.. YUM. Rides, I still LOVE the ferris wheel, the view is always amazing. Oh, deep fried snickers… I gotta try one of those! Now I am hungry. 🙁
Those little Donuts and the roller coaster!
Skeeball is my favorite game!
I haven’t been to a carnivale in so long. My favourite ride was always the Tilt-a-whirl. I could have stayed on it all day if my family didn’t drag me off!

I love elephant ears, and I like the zipper!
FUNNEL CAKES!! Yummy – they are my fave carnival food for sure. My daughter would tell you it’s the cotton candy though.
Thanks for the giveaway –
I am not a big rider at the carnival, but love the deep fried veggies! Great question, and love the book pack, hope I win
My favorite ride was the scrambler. I seemed to be terrified of most rides except this one.
I love cotton candy, caramel apples, and those really big onion rings! lol No wonder I get an upset tummy after the fair. lol

Bumper cars and beaver tails – totally Canadian! I love the fair/midway – it’s coming soon to our city -I think I need a caramel apple too!

I love the Zipper (only one in my family who doesn’t puke on it) ditto the Tilt-a-whirl. I also love funnel cakes and hot chocolate with whipped cream, though the best part is going with my family and having fun! email@example.com Krystal Larson
Bumber Cars was always my favorite ride!

I’m not a huge fan of carnival rides or games (this kind of carnival is a little more my speed), but I do like the odd funnel cake/beaver tail/elephant ear.
I like the very tame merry go round.

I’d have to say that my favorite food is the turkey legs. Yumm!
It’s a toss up between funnel cakes and cotton candy 🙂

Definitely cotton candy! Unfortunately, I suffer from severe motion sickness so I can’t go on any rides. This made for quite the boring childhood when everyone else was off on rides and I just had to sit and hang around. But, you can never go wrong with some fun games and lots of cotton candy. Yum!

My favorite was this ride in form of a pirate’s boat;well, IT WAS a pirate boat. It when back and forth and it got higher and higher. I don’t know the name though 🙂

My favorite thing about a carnival is the cotton candy!
I love the Frisbee ride, believe it is freaking scary and awesome at the same time.
I love funnel cakes and the tea cup ride. 🙂
No carnival rides — blech!!!!
Food? Corn dogs and funnel cake! OMG!
I can’t tell you my favorite. I honestly don’t know. I can tell you that I hate the ferris wheel. No way you will get me on it!
My favorite carnival food is a funnel cake! Yummy…now I want one!
