Dragon Wagon. County Jail. Train Station. Fried Dough. Fried Oreos. Nachos and cheese. Expo Ferris Wheel. Up Up And Away Samba Balloon. Ice Cream House. Sno-Kones. Popcorn. Hot Dogs. Hamburgs. Sausage and onion. Apple pie.

And my all time favorite ... Cotton Candy.

It's all here, as of Thursday at 5 through Saturday night at the Rotary Carnival behind Academy School in Madison, at the corner of Bradley Road and Academy Street, across from St. Margaret's Church.

Madison Rotary President Craig Bernard says this is the first time in about 25 years that Madison has experienced such an end of summer treat. And if that's not enough of a incentive, proceeds from the carnival go to all of the Rotary's good works including education and scholarship programs, youth sports, the food pantry, and the water tanks in North Madison that help our volunteer firefighters when they have to fight fires.

Admission is free. Rides require 3 to 4 tickets, which are $1 each. A family pack of 24 tickets is 20 bucks. And from the looks of it, it could be the best 20 bucks you'll spend all summer. And summer is fading fast.

It's running Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Thursday and Friday 5 to 10. Saturday 2 to 10.
