Spun sugar crystals float by spinning horses and pools of docile magnetic sharks beneath the glittering midway lights of Carol Stream Amusements' lively traveling carnival. The nearly 110-year-old fair company's third-generation of stewards bring rides, games, and snacks to states such as Florida, North Carolina, and New York, where it operates the state fair in Syracuse. A 65-foot century wheel soars above the bustle of the music-filled midway, where LED lights twinkle in patterns of white, green, blue, and red around its gondola cars. A merry-go-round sends fantastical steeds cantering around in a stately circle, while bumper cars careen around their nearby enclosure. Carnival games such as squirt-gun races and fishing for magnetized sharks yield prizes such as stuffed animals and inflatable Scooby-Doo, SpongeBob, and Henry VIII dolls, while flurries of corn dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and taffy apples fall constantly on hungry fair-goers.

It's hard to say what the biggest draw is at this year's RP Funding Orlando Chili Cook-off. Of course, there's the chili itself; more than 100 booths will be serving up samples by chefs from around the country, and prizes will be awarded for the best-tasting batches. Then for sheer amazement, you have the World Chili Eating Challenge, in which the world's best eaters go jaw to jaw during a six-minute test of wills. (For perspective, Joey Chestnut set a new world record in the 2014 competition by eating 2.125 gallons of chili in six minutes.) And finally, there's the free Friday Night Concert featuring Vertical Horizon, which kicks off the weekend's events with live music from 6:00 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The cook-off the next day will also feature live music all day, not to mention a large kids' zone, a raffle, and beer, wine, and cocktails available for purchase.
In the kitchen of the world, the ocean is the refrigerator—it's cold, mostly dark, and full of things that start to smell if you don't eat them in time. This June, you can celebrate the water and all of its edible treasures during the Festival of the Sea. Throughout this one-day event, you'll have the chance to munch on seafood creations from a multitude of vendors and restaurants. What's more, you'll be able to fill the time between bites by checking out the festival's other offerings, which will include:
Arts and craft vendors
A beer and wine garden
Live music from several different bands and DJs
A kids play area, complete with face painting, rock climbing, balloon animals, and a bounce house
Live music and a cold craft beer. It's hard to top that combination, though a second glass filled with hard cider might make things even better. The North Brevard Craft Brew Fest brings together craft breweries such as Bugnutty Brewing Company, Florida Beer Company, and Woodchuck Hard Cider. While attendees sample the various brews, live bands round out this summer celebration of all things hoppy.
The Rotary Club of Titusville hosts the event. When not throwing festivals, the organization hands out scholarships to students and supports many social initiatives.
