Agnes DiEuliis cast an elbow on the table before her and, fist under chin, reflected upon Downingtown's first Chamber of Commerce Fair 11 years ago. There were, of course, the handful of rides for the children and the skill games such as the ring toss and dart throw. Tickets were 25 cents, and two more quarters could buy a cotton candy. DiEuliis, who was staffing an information booth, recalled selling tickets from an old card table, and as darkness fell upon Kerr Park, she would move the table into the light of the amusement rides.

A year ago, David Jamison was hawking cotton candy and T-shirts at the Spectrum. Tonight through March 5, he'll be on the ice and in the spotlight as a featured performer with the Ice Capades. "Running up and down the stairs and all that was good training," said Jamison, 24, who grew up in Roxborough and started skating when he was 7. "I kinda knew that I was going to go into an ice show. I just didn't know which one. " Jamison shows off some flashy jumping in the show's opening number, joins three other skaters during a fast-paced medley of contemporary hit songs, and takes a standout role in the grand finale, a salute to Paris.

The carnival at St. Casimir's Roman Catholic Church in Riverside has brought neighbors together for more than 40 years of old-fashioned fun. Held on the parking lot of the parochial school and a closed side street, the carnival is characterized by nostalgic tunes blaring from loudspeakers and big pots of boiling water at the clam bar under a yellow-and-white canopy. Inside the school cafeteria, another specialty is served. "We made 1,292 pierogies, 2,100 golabki [stuffed cabbages]

As the Phillies approach their unprecedented 10,000th loss, Seymour "Pops" Steinberg has more than a passing interest. That's because the 79-year-old, who still sells cotton candy and water ice at Citizens Bank Park, figures he has attended more than 2,000 of the defeats since he began working as a Connie Mack Stadium vendor in 1954. That's more than Gene Mauch. More than Tony Taylor. More than Harry Kalas. More, in fact, than almost anyone who has ever worked for a club that is about to make dubious history.

We arrived at the St. Casimir's Carnival at opening bell, 6 p.m., determined to carry out our assignment to the fullest extent possible. There were three on our team: Grace, the youngest, is a kindergarten graduate who just turned 6, with a streak of enthusiasm and a taste for adventure. Carly, just out of eighth grade, is caught somewhere between innocent adolescence and the pressures of teenagehood. And me, a single mother, anxious to recapture the spirit of my youth - at least for one night.

WHAT IT IS - Around here, it's usually called Italian ice - that sweet and cold concoction that can be as refreshing as bodysurfing in the ocean on a scorching summer day. Italian ice, sometimes just called water ice, is usually whipped into a slurry of fruit and ice, and then frozen solid. It comes in lollipop colors and flavors like lemon, watermelon, and cherry. In other parts of the country, like Hawaii and Florida, variations called shave ice and snow cones are a similar frozen dessert.

Carl A. Goldenberg, 85, of Center City, who continued his family's legacy of making Goldenberg's Peanut Chews, died Monday, Oct. 14, of prostate cancer at his home. Mr. Goldenberg was the first member of the third generation in his family to operate Goldenberg Candy Co. The business was started in 1890 by his grandfather David, a Romanian immigrant, as a small candy store on Frankford Avenue. "That was Dad's calling - to go into the family business," said his son, David, the last Goldenberg to be president of Goldenberg Candy Co. "It was very important to him because his name was on the package.

Joseph A. Skelly, 68, who took a single merry-go-round and turned his business into one of the region's carnival giants, died of a pulmonary embolism Friday at the Bert Fish Medical Center in New Smyrna, Fla. Mr. Skelly, who had lived in Edgewater, Fla., since 1995, previously resided in Wiliamstown for 10 years. He got his start in 1956 when he bought a truck-mounted merry-go-round to supplement his income as a full-time bookbinder for the Sam Bless Co. in Philadelphia. He drove up and down the streets of Southwest Philadelphia, charging 10 cents a ride for children.

You can find cotton candy at lots of places down the Shore, but the theatrical cotton candy at Cape May Stage - in the form of Paul Rudnick's play called I Hate Hamlet - is different. Bite into it, and somewhere inside, a hidden lump of fine chocolate will surprise you. Rudnick, whose plays include Jeffrey and whose wit often finds its way into the New Yorker, at first glance offers us some pleasant, unremarkable fluff in his 1991 play about a popular TV actor with inch-deep experience on the stage.

A number of girls strolled around the Wells Fargo Center Friday night in lollipop and cupcake-studded brassieres. Also frequently sighted were peppermint-striped and fruit-inspired dresses, blue wigs, neon mini skirts and LED-lit cotton candy. It was Philadelphia stop of pop star Katy Perry's nine-month "California Dreams" tour and slightly bizarre outfits with lots of sequins turned out to be the norm. Since the release of her 2008 chart-topping album "One of the Boys," the 26-year-old singer has transformed herself into a global celebrity.

HARRISBURG - Maple syrup, pulled pork, cotton candy. Honey ice cream, potato doughnuts, rib-eye sandwiches. And, of course, the famous milk shakes. "This," said Breanna Anderson, pointing with her fork to her surroundings. "The food court. " That's what it's about at the Pennsylvania Farm Show, where thousands turn out each year for livestock competitions, shopping, and, of course, the eats. On Saturday, young kids, reminiscing parents, and giddy teens filled the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg for opening day of the show.

WAYNE STEWART Sr. and his son who shares his name knew all along that Philly's own Taney Dragons could bring a win home against Texas in last night's Little League World Series game. Even as the rest of the crowd of about 200 Taney fans that the Stewarts joined to cheer the team on the big screens at the City Hall courtyard tensed up during the nail-biter of a contest, they held fast to their Philly faith. "I'm still feeling good," the older Stewart said after Pearland, Texas' Cole Smajstrla hit a three-run homer to take the lead and Taney changed its pitcher in the top of the fifth inning.

Buzz: Hey, Marnie. I just heard a radio ad for vodka that tastes like whipped cream and marshmallows. Is that a Halloween prank? Marnie: No. As horrifying as it might sound, those are real products, and they are getting popular, too. In the last few years, the proliferation of flavored vodkas has pushed distillers to be creative. We used to see only fruit flavors like lemon and raspberry, but once the dessert barrier was crossed with flavors like vanilla and chocolate, there was no going back.

LONDON - Jordan Burroughs envisioned this moment for so long, he planned every detail right down to his celebration. But when it happened, it didn't go quite according to plan. First he draped an American flag over his back and ran to the left side of the arena. Then the right. Finally, he darted across the arena yet again, hopped over a barricade, and climbed into the stands, all the way to section 410. "I wanted to be with the fans and I knew my mom was in the section somewhere," Burroughs said.

It's not the money, it's the principle that has Cleveland closer Chris Perez riled. He's considering appealing a $750 fine from Major League Baseball for posting what they call a "reckless" message on his Twitter account after batters for both the Indians and Royals were hit by pitches, touching off two bench-clearing tussles last Saturday in Kansas City. To wit: "Huge team win tonight; time for a sweep to tell the Royals it's not 'Our Time', it's #TribeTime. P.S. You hit us, we hit you. Period.

From: Gonzalez, John Ryan Howard is on the DL, but that apparently didn't stop him from heading to Dorney Park recently. You can see pictures of him walking around, sans crutches, on the blog CrossingBroad.com. How do you feel about Howard and his injured ankle heading out to the amusement park instead of sitting at home and resting? This could explain the Phillies' roller-coaster season. I don't have a problem with it. It's probably beneficial to walk a little. And a quick off-day spin on the Screamin' Swing or Demon Drop isn't likely to impact a sore ankle - though both could bring to mind Greg Dobbs' season.
