Students visited the annual Fort Worth Midway Carnival, an event that has been a Fort Worth tradition for many years.  Students interviewed local carnies and enjoyed a few of the rides while also playing some games that required strength and endurance. Workers gave their insights on the work and the intensity of the rides, specifically one called “The Beast.” Next to the Midway is the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. People from all around Texas visit Fort Worth just for this event.
