  1. ‘Twas my first visit to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, one of the biggest events in the city! Have been going to Houston since I was a wee little baby (family lives there), but haven’t been to the Rodeo before! They had livestock (cows, pigs, goats, rabbits, chickens, etc.), a rodeo show, some agricultural universities with booths (like Texas A&M and Texas Tech), a carnival, and more! Rides at the carnival were provided by Ray Cammack Shows (iirc they usually do carnivals and fairs in the Western United States like Arizona, California, etc.). We’re here! Cows Moooooo One of 4 Ferris Wheels on the midway Big scary roller coaster A look down the midway. I’m sure these rides are *totally* safe to ride! Another Ferris Wheel! Random Fun House thingy. Brrrrrr This ride barely had any patrons… but it was also raining off and on for most of the afternoon Your standard Gravitron ride (there was also another one by the name of ‘Centrifuge’) Ah yes this little bastard known as the Zipper Well, sorry kids! Looks like this ride’s closed! But you can always ride the Windsurf instead! I could’ve sworn this ride killed somebody before (haven’t they all? ) Well this is quite the surprise! Skee-Ball at the fair! Ice cream They had your typical assortment of carnival games. Pictured here is the pop the balloon game. I didn’t play any of the games though. Little Dipper but no Big Dipper Balloons! It’s not a fair without a Carousel! They also had a bigger one with 4-abreast seating (rode that one; skipped this one!). Yet another Ferris Wheel They had your typical sky ride/chair lift thingy but we didn’t ride it since it was raining off and on Whatever the hell this is… I’m sure your grandma remembers this ol’ carnival classic! They had your usual assortment of fun houses and not-so-scary dark rides; this one pictured here had an under the sea theme. They had another Carousel and Ferris Wheel in the Kiddie Land. Also pictured is a Wave Swinger with a circus theme. Cyclone Ladies and gentlemen! The one, the only: Dumbo! Mutton Bustin’ They had some other rides too like the big slide, a music express-type ride, and a log flume (who in their right mind would want to go on that in the rain??? ) That’s all, folks! Had a great time here and I’ll be sure to come back for another visit! (But preferably when it’s sunny! )
  2. After a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Amory Railroad Festival was back so I decided to go check it out! The carnival was provided by PBJ Happee Day Shows of Marion, Arkansas (located near West Memphis) who primarily does carnivals in Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Missouri along with the Coastal Carolina Fair in Charleston, SC as a book-in ride provider for Amusements of America (in fact, there was an A of A sign on the fence in front of the Moby Dick). There were 11 rides which is about all they can bring due to the limited space available. And we're here! A look down the midway from the 2nd floor of the Monkey Maze. It sure was nice to be back amongst the atmosphere of the carnival! It's not a fair without a Ferris Wheel! This one appeared to be in great condition with shiny, sparkling seats and a cool LED light show! I scream for Ice Cream! This worn-down looking slide is *totally* safe guys! I think I nailed the lighting in this particular photo! They offered rides for all ages, including these for the little kiddies. Zamperla Up Up & Away balloon ride for the little kiddies! I took a few rides on it for the heck of it and I gotta say it's a neat little attraction! Also peep the Zero Gravity in the background. The kids were losing their minds on Moby Dick. This ride is typically one of the most popular here. The folks on the Sizzler seemed to enjoy getting whipped around like scrambled eggs on a skillet! There was no Flatline 360 this year so instead we got the Himalaya, which appeared to be attracting a decent crowd! As always, the light show and mic man were top-notch, and it appears they've added a new purple and green roof and a wall in the center with a snowy background. There were dozens of cars lined up on Main Street for the Car Show! M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E! Amogus! Bull Ridin'! And that's a wrap! It was nice to be back here again and I can't wait for next year's festival! Hope you all enjoyed this trip report!
