Step right up… Motor City Carnivals

By: Kurt Buesching | August 13, 2012

Step right up, don’t be shy… we all know that you love a great carnival. Who doesn’t? The lights twinkle off the midway rides and fun house as you listen to the screams of joy (infused with small doses of terror) from those brave enough to ride. You partake in the age old tradition of sampling the cotton candy, deep fried elephant ears, popcorn, hot dogs and so much more. Those my friend,  are the sights, sounds and smells of one of America’s favorite past times, carnivals!

Now is the time of the year to check out your favorite Metro Detroit carnivals. Complete with rides, games and much more, we have compiled a list of some of the best carnivals around. So get your game face on and get ready to ride the rides and taste the sugary goodness that go hand in hand with a great carnival!
