IF: Sugary "The Cotton Candy Carnival Show"

Come one, come all to the sweetest show you'll ever know...

reminiscent of those from long, long ago.

When tents were theaters for the sweetly strange
and confectionery goodies were had
for a small bit of change.

to the one and only,
"Cotton Candy Carnival Show!"
Where the singing and dancing are all the rage
you can feel free to take a bite of our stage.

You see, we've decked out our tent for the main event

with candy dot tie backs and edible fabrics.

and after the show we will dine for some time
divine pink and cotton twine.
but for now, did you know?
It's on with the show


please help me welcome the one and only.....

Cotton Candice


The Sugary Sensations!!!

These sweet gals will dance, they'll sing and everything

and after the dancing and the song

be prepared to join along

We'll delight in this tasty feat

because the entire tent is one giant sugary treat.

So, be prepared to eat eat eat!
