10 Funny Fair Moments That Will Have You Grabbing Your Kettle Corn!

Carnivals and fairs are a highlight from many of our childhoods. Whether we went to local fairs, 4H activities, or the state fair, we all have some great memories. There was laughter, fun, maybe scary rides, cotton candy, and corn dogs. For our family, it was the yearly fair in Chelsea, Michigan. Aside from the rides and festival food, there was also the Demolition Derby and the Tractor Pull. We looked forward to it every year.

The people below had a bit more entertainment than they were planning on!

1. Cotton Candy Is Always A Crowd-Pleaser — This One Has A Little Extra

We think he might have lied on his resume or exaggerated his level of experience.


Either someone set him up or he lied about knowing how to use the cotton candy machine. 🤪

3. Kiddie Rides Can Get Pretty Wild!

4. Maybe She Should Not Have Taken This One For A Spin?

Nope, I think it’s a bit too late to back out now, friend!

8. When You Just Gotta Scream!

Trying to act like you’re not frightened on a ride can backfire if you’re still recording during the scream!

9. When The Adult Escorting You Is Laughing A Little Too Hard

This young man is winding his way through a house of mirrors. The adult with him can’t stop giggling.

10. When You’re At The Fair And Nothing Is Swinging Your Way!

This little girl got a little assistance when her hammer swinging went awry! Kudos to the fair worker!

We hope you have many happy and wonderful experiences at your next fair. We have enjoyed watching others have entertaining moments, and they brought back many memories. Be sure to share with your friends when you’re trying to talk them into riding the Gravitron!
