There was a sugar cane boiling room - like in the olden days of sugar making.
This is the cane syrup boiling - it was hot in there! they call this 'wet sugar' - and it is basically molasses.
Here is the turning arm - they usually have a horse pulling it around to crush the cane, but the horse was taking a break - see the cane piled in the background?
This was the only 'carnival' ride that I saw - the thing on top of the VW bug would go around and had seats for kids to sit in ... we were there on the first day so they were just setting things up in some areas.
