Now for me, carnivals are a bit nostalgic. Ever since before I can remember, my family has been returning to my parents' hometowns for their fall fairs. Every year we go to Tiverton and Ripley, Ontario, to see family, friends, and enjoy some small-town fun. Since Trent U is far away from home, I haven't been to a fair in a while. So I was pretty excited for this one!
I must admit, though, the view was pretty spectacular.
Afterwards, we wandered around and checked out the games and of course, the food. There was a lot of delicious sounding treats, but I chose a traditional candy apple. Mine had chocolate and nuts on it. For some reason, they call candy apples "pommes d'amour" here... not sure where the name came from. My three girlfriends all got tasty ice cream, and my other friend got a beignet with salted caramel on it. It was pretty much the most amazing thing ever... and I intend to go back for one myself soon!
