D, C, R, and I walked around the festival grounds last evening and had a great time. Lots of music, food, rides, and games! There were plenty of vendors around hawking their wares. This guy was selling, among other things, hand held bubble makers.
Just a ways down the road to Silver Beach, the folks under this tent were racing remote control cars.
The lovely new Silver Beach Carousel was doing a brisk business and the Shadowland Pavillion was open and serving beer and soft drinks to those over 21.
There was plenty of junk food to be had and folks seemed to be buying and enjoying it.
Security folks were all around the grounds making sure there was no rowdiness.
There weren't a lot of rides, compared to an amusement park, but there was a nice variety. From sedate rides like the Fun Slide...
And kiddie rides...
To rides that swing, spin, and drop, for the big kids!
And of course there were lots of games of chance.
Not everyone is lucky enough to win at the games of chance but some do. Here's a good but weird example of one of the prizes you can win... your own alien!
And Mother Nature contributed to the fun atmosphere with a another lovely Lake Michigan sunset.
I'm looking forward to visiting the Venetian Fest again Saturday and Sunday. Will I see you there?
