365 Things To Do In Wheeling.

#23.  Woodsdale Carnival. 

It's a carnival.  It's in Woodsdale.

I grew up in a small steel town (about 1500 residents).  One of my most cherished childhood memories is of the annual fireman's carnival.  There was a Ferris wheel.  You could see the Ferris wheel from all the way at the other end of town.  Seeing that big round steel structure was the sure sign of summertime.  The women sold Coleman's fish sandwiches inside the firehall and all the grandparents and aunts and uncles played BINGO outside under a canopy of multi-colored triangle-shaped banners.

Ah....the carnival.

Ah....summertime.

Ah....childhood.
