we had been anxious to check out fete paradiso on governors island all summer long, and finally made it out there with friends this past weekend. we all kind of split up once we arrived so we could check out the different rides and attractions with our own individual families, and i can’t even begin to tell you how much fun our little family of four had. i’ve always enjoyed a good carnival, but this one really exceeded my expectations. the little french carnival is the world’s first traveling carnival and this is its first time in the USA. all the carousels and rides are from the late 19th and early 20th centuries! this stuff was legit and i felt like we were transported back in time. it’s here for only one more weekend, so if you’re here in the city and haven’t been yet, last call and i so recommend it!
the film above is footage we took during our day together at the carnival with our canon camera. i edited it in imovie. the song is charlotte mittnacht by devotchka (gosh we love them so it isn’t even funny.)
