The tiny sign off the side of the road caught my eye, over to the right, in front of the turn that takes you to where so many of my fellow city folks used to make their living crafting that fine Syracuse China.
Ah, yes, I remembered hearing the radio ad and seeing the news bit on TV.
It’s time for the annual Eastwood Carnival.
I took that right turn.
I saw some action going on way down yonder and drove toward it, past the new company on the left and the little league complex on the right.
I parked my Chevy Cruz and stepped out with my iPhone 6. Workers were turning the final nuts and bolts on the rides and food stands and Midway game booths that will be the three-day Eastwood Carnival.
A guy saw me taking photos from the outside of the fence and invited me in. A couple of friendly women in front one of the concession stands waved to me and asked if this meant they were going to be in the paper. No, ma’am, answered I. I wonder if she’ll see this blog and their photo in the gallery below.

The carnival runs tonight through Saturday in the parking lot at the former Syracuse China. I believe my dear wife Karen and I will make an appearance to support our neighborhood.
