I realized two things after attending carnivals this year: 1. No matter how advanced technology is, a carnival is still cash only. And 2. I enjoy autumn fairs and festivals way more than summer ones. I feel like autumn festivals are larger and have more to offer. They also almost always have apple and pumpkin treats to offer, which are the best kinds of treats in my book.
There are a few fairs and festivals that I'm already looking forward to attending in the fall. I got my summer carnival fix, so I think I'll be holding out for the season of harvest.
