Just thinking about all the food is making my mouth water! If I had to choose my favorite carnival food I would go with funnel cake, but it's too hard to pick just one. Everything is always so delicious.

I drove past Saint Charles Carnival in Cinnaminson this past weekend and it brought back so many memories from when I was a kid. That was the carnival we looked forward to every year and would not miss. It meant school was almost over and summer was right around the corner.

We would go every night and ride the Gravitron. Stuck to the wall, spinning around and around at top speed with the music blasting. I can't even imagine going on that ride now!
