Coney Island Summer Fridays are a thing I take advantage of at least once per season. Aside from the food, the fair and the fireworks, there was an added perk on offer during my recent annual pilgrimage: Clouds that looked like Cotton Candy. These gorgeous formations in shades of rose Pink and slate Blue hovered over the ocean as the sun prepared to set. They were simply breathtaking. If you were somewhere in New York, maybe you saw them as well.
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!
