I have lived in Mustang for 3 years, but this was my first visit to the Western Days carnival. What a sad excuse for a celebration. The community had a nice parade, offered booths to local vendors (all of which were very pleasant)...and then the awful people who operate the carnival ruin it all.
First, the prices were INSANE considering it is a small town carnival.$20 for a 'family pack' of ride tickets. Each ride cost at least 1 ticket. So a family of 4 gets to ride 2 rides for 20 dollars? Or you can just let the kids ride...except most of the rides were either unattended, broken, or in obvious disrepair.
The canival employees were VERY rude. They seemed to WANT to perpetuate the "carny" stereotype. After ordering overpriced food, they tried to push us aside and wait on the next person without giving us all our food. When we asked for the rest, they accused us of trying to get free food by claiming another worker already handed us our food. That attitude isn't warranted or appreciated by anyone trying to enjoy a fun day out with the family.
I wish this town all the best with it's future celebrations, but I will take my $20 and spend it somewhere else.

I admit it. I borrowed money to take my children...I just didn't have the extra money. I have four children and the tickets were outrages! Corndogs were four dollars. The food and rides are way over priced! The people were absolutely RUDE! Smoking while operating the rides...I have a child with asthma and he did suffer an attack due to the sizzler guy blowing smoke our way! The community is awesome. The booths are great. The prices need to come down. We should save our money next year and blow it all at the fair!
