Close to the end of every summer, I make my annual Friday evening pilgrimage to Coney Island to walk on the boardwalk, explore the rides and games at Luna Park, eat a hot dog at Nathan’s, watch the freaks, and check out the amazing fireworks show!
After a short while spent observing the scene, you will start to notice folks lugging around various huge, oversized stuffed toys they’ve won playing the games. This year, the Giant Pink Banana was a popular prize for several of the games!
Look how cheerful he is! Pink Banana!
