Point and Shoot Contest #120 - All's Fair

This is a repost of the contest, this time with the subject in the title!

This month's theme is fairs or carnivals of any type, images of any subject.

Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close January 31, 2018 midnight CST.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

Thanks, Cipher!

Interesting set, kshapero. The little girl and her expression are priceless.

Cipher, I've dug up some oldies to fit your "all's Fair" theme.
These were both taken at the Kansas State Fair Carnival in 2013, with the Panasonic FZ150, (exif data seems MIA after computer rebuild)

I don't really visit fairs.
A bit too crowded for my liking.
I hope this one qualifies
There was an event with unusual small vessels

Well I guess I've misjudged the reaction to the contest. I was thinking more of images like these:







A little dash of color to a offset a dreary January?

Like Bart I don't go to Fairs and/or entertainment parks and carnival parades, but I once went on a photo shoot to a local carnival wagon graveyard. It's located on an industrial site near the village Sas van Gent and it's been several years ago. Don't even know if it still exists.
