Summer is a season for adventure, spontaneous fun, the sweetest treats, and cotton candy-colored skies. That's why you need to find the nearest carnival to go to ASAP. Growing up, I remember begging my mom to go on every single ride there was at the state fair. The Ferris wheel was my absolutely favorite because you could see all the twinkling lights, people, food stands, and rides from the very top. It really was one of those "take a picture, it'll last longer" moments, which is why you need to be prepared with captions for summer carnivals before you go.
If your crew's looking to have an epic summer to remember, a carnival is where you should kick things off. On your to-do list, be sure to add all the thrill rides, stopping by a fortune teller, and having some friendly competition at the carnival games. Plus, if you're a major foodie, just think of the amazing eats that'll be in your near future. Try a deep-fried Oreo, or just a good old fashioned hot dog. Get bright pink cotton candy, and take a colorful snap in front of a ride whizzing by in the background.
When the time comes to post any of the pics you take on Instagram, use any of these 28 carnival captions. Even if you lose the carnival games you play, you'll have the amazing memories to feel like a true winner, and will leave feeling super nostalgic.
