No one but the pure at heart may find the golden grail

You may have seen this on your Friends page or perhaps in your RSS reader already. If you haven't, then here's the past week in my humor blog. Enjoy!

Besides the Baby Food Festival pinball tournament there was actual proper festival stuff going on. Let me prove it with photographs.

Giant slide and satisfyingly fast (if rough) merry-go-round set up in the streets of Fremont for the Baby Food Festival. This is downtown, just outside the diner where the tournament was held.

Mystery Mansion! Extremely compact dark ride that, when we rode it at another setup, wasn't all that exciting. But it did make great use of very limited space; the thing's set up to fit inside a single truck trailer, after all.

Redemption game, swinging ride, and a Super Round-Up at the Baby Food Festival.

And then some more of the rides, mostly kiddie rides, with a Ferris wheel, set up in the streets of Fremont. We'd ride the Ferris wheel when it came to Ingham County a couple weeks later.

It's just coincidence and not at all the pharmacy run by baar_bear. Sorry. On the street opposite the Blind Squirrel Tavern in Fremont. We'd get to know the Blind Squirrel Tavern quite well in the following months, as we rode it into the State Championship Series. Still haven't made it into the pharmacy though.
