Since the Chicago's World Fair of 1893, carnival entertainment has held favor in cities and towns in America. Every Summer, children line up for a ride around the ferris wheel, their parents lining up for funnel cakes, while teens can embrace freedom to roam for a night. Fairs bring a diverse group of people together for a love of fun and food, providing a distraction from everyday life. The lights, rides, and food are a transportation into a new world. These photographs capture the feeling of Summer, giving the viewer sentimentality.
