I Can Smell The Elephant Ears and Deep Fried Oreos From Here

I was at the Meridian Mall Tuesday and right over by Central Park and Marsh Road, I saw what looked to be the beginnings of a fantastic weekend if the weather holds out.

There's Nothing Like A Friday/Saturday Night At The Fair

And the timing couldn't be better. Mask mandates are being lifted for those who are fully vaccinated. The weather should be cooperating. Temps could be in the 80s. And heaven knows we really could use a good time with friends and family at the carnival right now.

Oh and deep fried everything.

By the way, the folks handling carnival are from Michigan as well.

Say hello to Anderson Midways out of Standish, Michigan. And according to this post, they'll be hanging around a little while longer than what's on the flyer above.

We'll see you this weekend in Okemos for elephant ears, cotton candy, and all the deep fried things. Let's ride some rides, have some fun, and try to get back to this thing we call normalcy.
