Five-year-old Aiden Lair had a lot to smile about Saturday as he trotted from one carnival ride to the next.
Under his arm he clutched a giant stuffed shark, won when he picked the right plastic duck out of the water at the Pick a Lucky Duck game.
Aiden and his 3-year-old sister, Kinsey Lair, can thank their aunt, Jackie Steubing, who brought them for a day of fun at the Farmington Volunteer Fire Association’s 69th annual carnival in Pumpkin Hook.
“We’re having an aunt’s day,” said Steubing, as she corralled Aiden and Kinsey before moving on to the next ride. “We started off with the kiddie parade and they dressed up. We have the Sno-cones, and we come for the chicken barbecue.”
Aiden’s favorite are the rides he can stand up on. And the duck game was pretty exciting, too.
“Everybody wins, so that’s nice,” said Steubing.
