Carnivals have changed a lot over the years, but the basic premise of a carnival is a public celebration or event.

These events usually include parades, entertainment, games, food, and most of all fun for a community.

There is the big carnival called Mardi Gras every spring in New Orleans and then there are smaller versions of carnivals happening all over the world different weeks throughout the year.

Carnivals may commemorate a special time in the history of a community or they may just be an annual time of fun and fellowship for a city or town.

One thing we do know is that children LOVE carnivals. The sights, smells, tastes, and experiences are looked forward to and talked about long after the carnival ends.
