When You’re Ready To Hit The Ticket Booth, These Carnival Captions Will Come In Handy

POV: You’re riding the Ferris wheel with me.

Originally Published: 

Summer is officially over the moment the fall fair comes to your town. It’s bittersweet, but you don’t really mind when the air smells like cider doughnuts and you can see cotton candy stands, Ferris wheels, and a row of game booths all from the road. While you and your besties may have already talked about going to the fair to score fried treats and fluffy prizes, you’re probably also excited for all the #content you can get and pair with these Instagram captions for fall fairs.

After all, the entire experience is picture-perfect, from the twinkly lights that illuminate the night sky after the sun has set, to the carnival rides that remind you of iconic romance movies like The Notebook. You already have a couple ‘fits picked out that’ll shine next to a soft pretzel or plate of fried dough and give your followers serious FOMO. All you have to do is hand over a disposable camera to your BFF or boo, and ask them to snap candids of you throughout the day and night.

Instead of giving each picture a separate post, be sure to share them all as a photo dump and give your followers a glimpse into your trip to the fair from beginning to end. Pick out one of these carnival captions for your post, too, so you’re totally prepared to post while waiting in line at the ticket booth.
