Visiting a Midway Carnival Keeps Everyone Young

carnival fun for all, carnival fun all agesA carnival is unique in its ability to elicit fun and enjoyment from people of all ages. Everyone goes to the carnival during childhood and the memories it implants are powerful images and feelings of being young. More importantly, when those memories are triggered, they are just as intense decades later and have the ability to transport people back to their earlier experiences, almost like being there.

It’s the feelings that are the key. Many experiences leave images in the memory, but few bring feelings with such potency and reality as a carnival.

The smell of popcorn and mini-donuts… the feel and taste of cotton candy on and in your mouth… the swirling sounds of midway games, buzzers, bells, barkers, laughter, rides and music… the anticipation before a ride begins and the feel of the restraints… the sudden drop in your stomach as you plunge…

See? You’re there already. You’re back in your childhood.

Carnival fun is truly for all ages. It’s definitely the fountain of your youth. Summer carnivals in BC are where you relive it all over again, for yourself and through the eyes of your own kids.  Read More »
