Many see Memorial Day as the kick off to the summer. Boalsburg sees Memorial Day as their chance to shine, as birthplace of the holiday that honors our veterans.
They started off their festivities tonight with the fire company carnival that will run throughout the weekend. I cover a lot of carnivals each summer and am always looking for a new twist on photos of games, food and rides. It was wristband ride night, so youngsters were filling up the rides, which made my job a lot easier. I spotted the swings off to the back, with the ferris wheel standing tall besides it. A storm had passed through in the afternoon hours but the sun was trying to peak out through the gloominess. I watched as riders rose higher and higher in the air, their feet swinging out and started to click away.
