This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

One of the main attractions at many festivals is the midway, which contains rides of many types for people of all ages.  The Lewiston, New York, Peach Festival, was no exception.  The midway had several interesting rides.  I don’t know the name of the ride above, but I do know that I wasn’t interested in checking it out.

I remember the Octopus from the County Fair when I was growing up.  The Peach Festival had a modern version of the ride I enjoyed as a boy.

The China Dragon was fairly tame, but still very colorful.

This young lady looks as if she has some doubts about the Bumble Bee giving her a ride.  Perhaps she had seen the scratches and dents on the bottom of the bee.

This young man had the best ride at the festival.  He was safely tucked into a stroller guided by his parents.

    Really great festival pictures,i love the intense colors. My favorite is the first one, I enlarged it twice and can see their feet hanging down! Scary stuff, I wonder how many threw up their peaches? Your petrified post from Monday is really interesting, and I suppose it is illegal to bring home any geodes…

    The last time I went for rides was 1993, when I went to Disney Anaheim and Knots berry farm. After that, I pay just to go in.
