Muskogee Carnival was lit (beautifully) tonight

I’m originally from Muskogee, Okla. Since this is Easter weekend I went home to be with my family, lo and behold it is also the city carnival this week. My mother treated me, my little sister and my friend to it, and I captured a few moments of excitement and lightning.

I spend most of my time in my college town of Stillwater, Okla. I try and make it home once a month and to spend time with my 5-year-old sister, my 3-year-old brother and my parents. When I went to the carnival tonight I remembered why I don’t come home often. It’s not a college town, it’s full of gangs, teenagers and over-privileged kids that think they own everything; come to think of it it does sound like a college town.

It’s always fun going home; it’s familiar and it’s fun seeing the city grow and the demographic change.
