We live in Round Rock, Texas, near a large baseball stadium called the Dell Diamond. There's a super huge park that backs up against it called Old Settlers Park, and every year they do a spectacular light show. You pay for your car/vehicle and drive through the park where various light displays are set up.
At then end they have Christmas Town, which mostly consists of even more lights you can view on foot, games to play, and photo ops.
There also happens to be a carnival that comes to town every year and sets up as part of this experience, or you can hit it up separate, called The Mighty Thomas Carnival.
It's very small, but all of the good stuff is there, and they even have a Ferris Wheel.
Darren and I took the kids and Nana even tagged along!
Johnny loved all of the walk through houses like the hall of mirrors and this one called U-Toob.
I've always been a fan of carnivals and love their artwork.
Everyone had a great time. We ate hot dogs, funnel cake, and drank giant sodas from super cute and mega cheesy cups.
I saved mine for drinking water out at home ;)
We played a few games and Johnny had his fill of fun houses and cotton candy.
I would recommend the Thomas Carnival for smaller kids under the age of 10, however we all had a fantastic time and we can't wait to go back next year.
