Taste of St. Stan's Carnival Member Picks Agenda Recommended

When: June 7-10 2012

The arrival of summer heat brings a variety of urges, the most puerile of which, for me, is a yearning for the dinky traveling carnivals of my childhood. The presence of a Six Flags in Gurnee does nothing to satisfy this craving; I want paper tickets, Ferris wheels rolled in on trailer beds, and all manner of fried foods. The Taste of St. Stan's Carnival, making camp in West Town all weekend long, is a return to this debatably safe, undeniably fun tradition. —Jamie Keiles
