Bunny Prizes at the Fair, 1940

FairBoyBunniesOn September 18, 1940, a young fair goer looked up with amazement as he was awarded his carnival game prizes: two inflatable bunny balloons, almost as big as himself. The unidentified boy was one of 42,500 people attending the 41st annual Western Washington Fair in Puyallup on Tacoma Day. In 1940, the fair ran from September 16 - 22nd.  goo.gl/CmHvDE
