Further proof that everybody who posts on this site sits in their basement and hits F5 all day.

I might stop by to get a corn dog or something.

Take my kids and walk around but no rides, i dont see them as safe.

I go just to watch the people and what they say. It's hilarious.

Multi- My children go to Worlds of fun every summer and yes they do the ice-cream truck. I just think that the safety of the rides is not great, those rides are constantly being taken apart. Besides my youngest doesnt like the rides anyway, WOF or not.

I don't let my kids ride those rides either and I would prefer not to be labeled as a wierd parent, thank you very much. My kids do tons of other stuff and I don't think they will grow up to hate me for the one thing I didnt let them do. Worlds of fun is far safer anyway. They do get ice cream from the trucks and we just got back from the beach where I let them go out pretty far. As a parent its my job to decide what my kids can and cannot do in the intrest of their safety. I don't think I would let them run in the street since its not safe to do that.

I just decided to go to the fair and get on some of the rides myself, based on Multi's comment. I have been terrified of everything my whole life and am now just getting over it. My daughter and I are back together as I have explained to her why I have problems and she has accepted and loves me. We might have turned out like that family you mentioned. Good advice, Mult.

Good for you, Irish! Sometimes all it takes to leave fear behind is to take one step forward! Your family gives you strength, return as needed.

My 7 and 8 year old will get bracelets on Thursday (Family night) and ride every ride they are tall enough for just like I did with all my cousins and friends when I was a kid ! Then we'll take our behinds to the derby Friday night to watch my hubby crash into other people.

We will chow down on some seriously greasy fried foods follow them up with some shaved ice and count the days to the fair next year.

Just saying the fair was a huge part of my childhood growing up in this wonderful city and so the tradition continues . . . .
