When I went to the opening night of the Big Fresno Fair with friends, we expected a night of fun, rides, and games.
Although the games are rigged, sometimes you get lucky and win. So when we were offered a free dart throw, then another, I felt obligated and bought 3 for $10. We won a stuffed doll, and the carny said I owed $20 because I had to pay for the first two "free" throws. At the pellet gun booth, you get 11 shots to hit six small plates for $5, and the sign reads get a free prize with each win. So we hit one but didn't get a prize because they said it meant hitting all six plates to equal one win.
I would warn anyone thinking of going to be aware that this is not the relaxing, fun family outing they may expect, but rather an unfriendly environment.
