Swimsuit-clad revelers sip drinks as they bob down the river in a flotilla of colorful tubes. Smoke rises from barbecue pits and campfires as the sun's light dims, and laughter and cheers ring out from grass volleyball games as an electronic mix of music echoes off of tree trunks. Over the course of Boobs & Tubes' outdoor party weekends, campers party and occasionally apologize for waking grizzly-bear neighbors in and around Croton Dam in Michigan or Skinners Falls in New York. Campers who come for a full weekend take shelter in tents to immerse themselves in the freedom of the wilderness. Boobs & Tubes' main goal is to bring together groups of people for outdoor enjoyment while also proving modern amenities such as showers, breakfast buffets, and live DJ sets with colorful light shows, much in the fashion of Davey Crockett's most fancy dinner parties

Combatants in Laser Park's 3,200-square-foot arena travel through a pall of fog as they navigate the arena's halls, ducking behind cover as they face the opposing team at critical chokepoints. Fluorescent paint lends a stark neon outline to the otherwise dark playing field, where the mortar of brick walls forms a grid of light and barrels appear like multicolored rolls of Life Savers. The arena has space for up to 28 players, split between two teams seeking to annihilate the opposition's base. An arcade with pinball, skee-ball, and other games provides virtual training between bouts.
A simulation of a frontier town, Wild West City, in its 53rd year of existence, entertains cadres of visitors with live-action shows, train rides, and costumed characters. Amble down Main Street and browse the shops before shooting the breeze with historic figures such as Jesse James or Wild Bill Hickok's spittoon. In the buildings located along Main Street, visitors learn about 19th-century farming, period dressmaking, and blacksmithing. Western wanderers can marvel at 22 different live-action shows, or saunter through the barnyard zoo as goats, ponies, and pigs prance about. History buffs mimic ’49ers while panning for gold, as they comb through sluice in search of the mother lode in Egan's Mine #1.
Situated just steps from the beach, Asbury Park Boardwalk Amusements stretches before visitors a local, sun-drenched getaway rife with refreshing dips and holes in one. Pintsize and full-size visitors alike can sponge up some much-needed R&R beneath the Splash Park's colorful, water-sprouting contraptions, which are perfect for cooling off on a hot day or teaching bellybuttons how to chug. On the 18-hole mini golf course, sights and sounds of the boardwalk swirl around putters as they weave from hole to hole. The facility's convenient location also makes it a breeze for families to continue their outings, either by catching a show or having dinner at one of the boardwalk's many popular spots.
The exhibits at the Happy Days Fair make a familiar sound: vroom. That's no surprise to the fans who come to see the contemporary and classic vehicles on display at this car and bike show. Once you’re done drooling over your dream sports car or motorcycle, you can let the wind dry off your chin on the ferris wheel or on other carnival rides on the grounds. There's also a karaoke stage where amateur performers belt their best stuff in a competition for a cash prize. But it wouldn't be a day at the fair without the concessions booths, which saturate the air with the scent of funnel cake and other fair goodies.
