Horse Race Booth: Thursday - Spring Blog Carnival

****!!RACE CLOSED!!****

First up I must announce the winning horse of yesterday's race. . .


Waterfall wasted all the competition.
The competition put up the most pathetic attempts I ever saw.

If you chose that horse to champion congratulations you have been entered into the prize pot. To everyone else better luck with the next race.
For return players you can skip the formalities being repeated and check out today's horses racing. Place your bet in the form not the comments and answer the new question in the comments section.

Who doesn't love a little carnival fun. I sure haven't outgrown my love for carnival games. Lori over at Pure Imagination along with Angela from Reading Angel and Candace from Candace’s Book Blog are throwing the second annual Spring Blog Carnival. I have joined up with them to host a booth. This is likely all stuff you know if you are following along by linky.

Step right up
Only one comment to enter a bet
Just answer the question: (This is your ticket for the booth and to place a bet)
What is you least favorite thing about carnivals?
Please place your bet through the form not the comments. We don't want to sway the other entrants. The form also gives me a way to contact the winner.
We have a lovely copy of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater as a prize
(US only)

There are four horses that will be racing today. Bet for your favorite one. If the horse you chose wins your entry will be placed in the pot to win the prize at the end of the carnival. Sorry only the winners advance to the final round here. So choose wisely! There will be a new race each day this week. Come back each day this week to bet on the new horses. You are allowed to enter once each day. That means seven different comments and seven different bets. There might be a way to tip the race in your favor. Spread the word any way you can. Encourage your friends to come and bet on your horse as well.

Today's horses are:

Bargains and Betrayals jockeyed by Shannon Delany

Divergent jockeyed by Veronica Roth

Damned jockeyed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

The Iron Knight jockeyed by Julie Kagawa
 They are ready to race so hurry and get your bets in. Which horse is your favorite or is the most likely to come out the winner?

  1. My least favorite thing about carnivals is the clowns. *shudders*

    1. I don't like clowns either. It may or may not have something to do with a certain movie, IT.

  2. My leastfavourite thing at a carnival is when i have to wait in long queues to get on a ride...kills half the fun! :(

    1. Yes! You wait a half hour or more and then get 30 seconds of riding bliss. Is it really worth it? Must be since I keep doing it but it makes me wonder if I am not just a little bit Lemming underneath it all.

  3. My least favorite thing about the carnival is the cost of everything- you can drop $50 on food alone!

    1. Oh yeah, the price is sky high. They really take advantage of your being confined to their lot. Hey, they have got to get hungry sometime and where else are they going to go? Bwahaha Not very nice Mr. Carnival Dude.

  4. How sick I feel after I go on the rides!

    1. I don't like the one that flip me upside down. Makes me want to puke and pass out all at once, not a pleasant feeling.

  5. My least favorite thing about carnivals are all the rides that spin in circles or spin upside down. I get sick just thinking about them.

  6. I don't like when it's too crowded. I feel uncomfortable.

    1. The crowds are a whole other nightmare. So many problems with that many people packed together.

  7. My least favorite thing about carnivals is the crowd--having to wait in line. I'm not a saint when it comes to patience. =)

  8. Clowns and crowds (well, not the crowds walking around, the lines)
