OLP 2013 – 6 – Run rabbit run

Run rabbit run!

I still get a kick out of non-horse mounts on carousels.

Italian Festival 5 – Carousel

Wheels keep on spinning round, spinning round, spinning round...

More Scotch Plains Italian Festival.

Man, if they’d had crazy sea dragons on carousels when I was a kid, maybe I’d’ve been more excited to ride them. It seems like hardly any carousels are horses-only these days! Have you noticed that?

Carnival!

Yay carousels!

It’s that time of year again for Our Lady of Peace (a Catholic church/school in downtown New Providence) to put on its annual fair! (They called it a country fair last year, they’re calling it a carnival this year… whatever, same thing.)

It runs Wednesday through Saturday, presumably because it’s hosted by good Catholics who don’t want to work on Sunday. So yes, it’s over now, but I’m still gonna regale you with a few days’ worth of photos. Carnivals at night are way too much fun to photograph!

(I know I’ve shown you a merry-go-round before, but… well, I’ve shown you more than one flower, too, so what’s the harm in repeating myself a little?)

I was once told that a merry-go-round rotates clockwise, and a carousel rotates counter-clockwise, or something… but according to Wikipedia, this seems to be a regional distinction more than anything, and carousels and merry-go-rounds are the same dang thing.

Merry go round!

What goes up must come down; spinning wheel, got to go round

The Turtle Back Zoo’s Endangered Species Carousel was only built in 2008 (according to a bit of stained glass above a door), but… well, who cares when a carousel was built, as long as people still love it?
