Just found out in the last 24 hours that our 85th annual 4th of July Celebration here in my small hometown in west central Indiana has been amended from an 8 day event with a carnival, to a three day event with only local food vendors and entertainment, and no carnival. They have even prefaced this announcement with this amended schedule is still very much up in the air and is the best we can hope for at this time.

I knew 6 weeks ago that a carnival this year was probably wishful thinking, but still to have it officially cancelled (the carnival), is a jolt and makes me wonder when and if I will see one at all in 2020.
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".
The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.
