November 10, 2010
We were just taking a stroll around town when we ran into this fair at Cacique Duma and Paseo de Canaris. It was closed during the day so we decided to return in the evening and watch the excitement. I love old amusement parks, and although this one was a temporary traveling installation for the Independence Day holidays (it will close on November 19) it reminded me of Coney Island back in the day.
There was a lo-tech Ferris wheel,
a small roller coaster,
carts of tasty food!
And, of course, a carousel right from the 1950s!
My only disappointment was that I didn't go on any of the rides. My friend doesn't do well on rides and I don't enjoy going on a ride by myself. I did suggest we go on one of the kiddie rides but his response was a vehement "That's a BABY ride!" Of course, my usual MO is to go on the fastest, most scary ride and then think "Oh, WHY did I do that?" as I'm walking away on shaky legs. This is one of those situations where I need to be saved from myself.
