The Carnival. This beautiful detailed mechanical masterpiece was built by a carnival showman who was injured, forcing his retirement. His love of the gay and exciting amusement world inspired him to design and build this magnificent miniature carnival.

A lot of these figures move when you insert your coin, music plays, etc. A similar attraction (located in Michigan) theoretically created by the "Butcher of Alcatraz" has more precise and smaller-scaled movement, but this one is much larger.

I like the little pig in the corner, he looks so helpless there. Don't worry little guy. I've called "911" and they said I'm under arrest for abusing a public service. So I gave them this address. Then they'll see you and save you. Pretty tricky, huh? You know you snort when you laugh, right?
