Full moon and fun at the fair

By From page A1 | June 13, 2014

Two small girls are jumping up and down in the Typhoon line. “Typhoon!” they scream excitedly. This is the first year they are tall enough to ride the whirling, honking Typhoon. Hair flying, mouths open in shrieks of terror/joy, they fly around the platform in their silver car, trying to be brave enough to put their hands up. Others standing in line for the Orbiter follow the high-speed whirling, up and down motion with their heads, wondering if the corn dogs they just finished will stay in their stomachs.
