Photo of the Day: Upside Down in Rochester Hills

Have you been to the carnival yet? It's here through Sunday.

Rochester Patch reader Kim Austin submitted this photograph of the new ferris wheel that is a main attraction of the temporary carnival ongoing through Sunday at the corner of Rochester and Avon roads.

Here is my Ferris Wheel fact 'o the day: The first major Ferris Wheel was built for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. It was designed by George Ferris, stood about 264ft high and held 36 "cars" that looked like train cars capable of holding 60 people per car making its capacity 2160 people at one time. Can you imagine that??
