Sure, we may have big amusement parks and tourist attractions and all, but nothing is quite as fun as a small traveling fair! Real carnys, rattletrap rides that make you feel like you're going to die, short lines.
The Atlanta Fair is here for about a month each year, and close to downtown. That puts it in bicycle riding distance, so some friends and I rode on over. Security let us lock up right next to their office. We had a blast riding the rides and eating some fried stuff. I was sure I was going to plunge to my death on the "Ring O Fire"! We had fun for a few hours and then road home.
