Perhaps because of Super Bowl Sunday, we did not have to fight any crowds.

There were no line ups for rides, food or games. Fried everything seems to be the new staple – fried reeses, fried oreo cookies, fried chocolate chip cookie batter – you get the idea.

I settled on a good old fashioned fried corn dog. As I strolled around the midway with a silly smile on my face, and maybe a little mustard, wonderful memories flooded my mind.

Magical colours, sounds of laughter intertwined with screams, blaring music, sweet smells of candy floss and roasting peanuts, thick smells of frying foods and of course the carny calls promising key chains, stuffed animals and bracelets which can be traded up for the coveted monster teddy bear and fame!

I am an avid traveller who believes that travel means participation. Whether it be observing traditional cultures, eating native delicacies, or drinking local drinks, one must fully immerse oneself to truly understand and enjoy a destination.
