STEP RIGHT UP! Do you remember going to your towns’ carnival as a kid? My memories take me to hot summer nights filled with colorful lights strung along rides and booths, the sweet, salty scent of kettle corn dancing through the air and a buzzing chatter punctuated by echoing shrills from roller-coaster riders. 

Looking for a fun theme for your wedding? Channel your inner carny and surprise your guests with something unexpected. Shock them with a Cirque du Soleil performance, or even classic carnival games with prizes – it’s easy to get creative and plan different interactive moments that’ll have your tables up and mingling. Here are some ideas from our WV Weddings Extravaganza hosted by Snowshoe Mountain Resort in 2012.
