Carnival City

 

A Carnival City Tucked Away Behind The Rides

“Though the sideshows like Rhinestone’s ‘kootch’ began to disappear in the 1970’s, there are still plenty of people making their living like he did by working hard on the carnival sites that pop up like dandelions in summer — in cow pastures and church parking lots — with flashing lights and whirling rides and hot dogs and snow cones for those who make a day of it. Workers — who have to put up the rides and knock them down for transport to the next site — stay in trucks and trailers like those in the photo when carnivals are “in-season.” It’s not an easy life, but many who aren’t “born to it” stay in the life because it’s personally challenging and seldom dull.”
