Wilkins Township Summer Festival 2015

One of our favorite traveling food trucks in Pittsburgh is the Pittsburgh Smokehouse. Their beef brisket is amazing. We will often check to see where they are located on any given day and visit that spot. This weekend they were at the Wilkins Summer Festival, a nice little carnival located in Wilkins Township that is celebrated in the middle of June. We had to run some errands and Brit surprised me with a stop here. Barbecue and rides? You can't go wrong!
The weather was miserable out, but they still ran the rides! Naturally my eye went right towards the good old Roll-O-Plane. These Eyerly creations are awesome!
Eli Bridge Ferris Wheels always catch my eye too. I wonder how many of these are in existence? It seems there are tons of them. Durable old machines. I always enjoy rides on these.
The view from the top of the Ferris Wheel of the midway, including the Roll-O-Plane and a Round-Up ride, and the Turtle Creek Valley in the background. 
Naturally Brit wanted to win a goldfish. We won two, RIP.
The Wilkins Summer Festival was a great little community event. I wish they had better weather for their Saturday, but we will definitely check it out next year.
