At some point in life, almost everyone has had the impulse to pack up their necessities, kiss their daily stresses and worries goodbye, and become a “carny”. It’s hard to deny that the carnival is a magical place. For adults and children alike, it has been a wonderful form of escapism for decades, letting the carnival goers leave the humdrum nature of reality behind, and lose themselves in a world of exhilarating rides, lively games, and captivating performers. Amongst the echoes of laughter and screams of delight, it’s hard to resist smiling broadly as you walk through the crowd of fellow elated attendees.
At Celebration Source, we bring the carnival to you! Providing the best party entertainments in West Miami, our job is not complete without a smile on every single face, just like a carnival is not complete without… carnival food! Whenever you take a bite of cotton candy or a candy apple, no matter where you might be, you can simply close your eyes and hear the whimsical sounds of that enchanting environment. But where did some of these foods originate? It’s not like there is a cotton candy tree (except for in our dreams). Let’s take a look at some of our favorite carnival treats and the history behind them.
