This was a rainy start for this day...
Some sprinkles but the Parade was not rained out
And it seems that we almost always have the same group of Vendors for every event
A sparse crowd on this misty morning
And watch out for the puddles... A pretty good rain earlier in the morning
This time part of the Carnival was located
In one of the baseball fields at the West end of the Park
Despite the weather the crowd picked up as the sky brightened some
A different Carnival day
This time most of the rides were in the Parking lot area of the Farmer's Market
It looks like I came too early in the morning... No one showed up yet
Back on the rainy day again... Or they moved the Ferris Wheel
This one looks a bit smaller though
I really wanted to get some pics at night, but always come up with some excuse
It's too hot.. It's too late.... I'm too tired...
But most of the action is after dark
The lights, the music and the large crowds
WOW! Were there that many Ferris Wheels there?
Or do I just like to take a lot of pictures of them?
But there is always room for one more picture
I bet the Operators would sure like to have more riders on this one
A brighter day and the Carousel is in the parking lot instead of the Baseball field
Parking is scarce in Downtown Parkville on a busy day anyway
And even harder to find when they block off the entire Farmer's Market lot
(but I know a good place, just a couple blocks away)
A quiet morning before the Crowd shows up...
Here you can see the Park College Administration building in the far background
The ever popular Carousel, this a smaller one but it is serving the purpose for the kids
Sometimes Mom has to get on and help out
One more ride on the Carousel and then we are off to a Riverfest
