Fun Time Amusements Family Carnival has brought fun and entertainment to Bundaberg this weekend and given the community a bit of excitement.
Whether it was one of the 10 show rides or a delicious Dagwood Dog, people were thrilled to be out and enjoying their time at the carnival.
Fun Time Amusements' Roy and Sally Johnson said it had been a tough year to be in the show business, but they were bouncing back with plenty of smiles along the way.
It was the third stop on the calendar for the family-owned travelling carnival from Rockhampton, and with 10 large amusement rides, and a variety of other show stalls on site, there was plenty to keep all the family entertained.
“We have the new Devil Dance ride,” Jordan said.
“We actually bought this just before the COVID-19 restrictions came into place, so it’s great to finally have it in use now.
“Our business is normally school fetes, festivals and promotions, so we had to rethink the business plan a little and the family carnival is what we came up with.”
Bundaberg’s Catalano and Ballis families enjoyed their Saturday, with the young at heart and the children taking advantage of the unlimited rides.
Rachel Ballis said her daughter Isabella had enjoyed the rides, saying she said couldn’t wipe the smile off her face after her uncle Jordan Ballis had won her a giant plush Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
“It’s quiet, but that is actually really nice,” Rachel said.
“It means we get to go on all the rides without the big lines.”
Jordan was stoked to win his niece the prize, and said it had been a great day out with the family.
“It’s been a pretty good day overall,” Jordan said.
“They have all hand sanitising in place, so it has been good.”
Fun Time Amusements Family Carnival will be at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on Sunday, 13 September, from 11am to 3pm. For more information click here.
