There were Christmas lights everywhere, and carnival rides, and food, food and more food. (Jason was helping man a booth for the San Marcos police department and they were selling fried oreos, fried cookie dough and fried snickers! I'd never heard of or tried any of them. Although each was pretty rich, they were actually pretty good!) There were performances throughout the park on various stages. And people EVERYWHERE! We walked around just looking at everything there was to see as Jason was the only one of us to have ever been there. We rode some carnival rides. I don't recall ever riding carnival rides in December....let alone riding them with Christmas lights on display everywhere I could see.
We decided to ride a couple of carnival rides. I was pretty apprehensive about riding one. I generally don't ride the ones that go upside down. This one didn't QUITE go all the way upside down....it appeared....but came very close!!!
On the far side you can see Heather, me and Cameron waiting for the ride to take off.
And away we go!
On another ride. This one spins so fast the walls slide up. I asked the ride operator to hold the camera and to snap a picture. He couldn't figure out how to work the camera so he took this picture after the ride, then told us to stay on and he'd take another one since he figured out the camera! He also let Mathew get back on with us and we all 3 got to ride again for free!

At the end of the night Santa had already left so we borrowed his sleigh!
Thanks, Erica and Jason for asking us to tag along!!!
