Having just recently arrived in Matthews, North Carolina we were told about the Matthews Alive Labor Day Festival. Since we’d been doing little more than unpacking boxes and getting settled into our new home for a few weeks, the idea of taking time off for a festival sounded like a great idea.
We decided to head to the festival on Friday night, when the kids could enjoy unlimited rides!
When I was a kid my parents would take me and my sisters to the Fireman’s Fair in their hometown, St. Johnsville, NY, every Summer. My sisters, cousins and I would ride the rides all night long. I think some of the exact rides were at Matthews Alive, and I was happy to experience them with my own kids. (Even if they did make me a little sick.)
