    If I ever recover from this travel day (9hour flight, a 8 hour layover due to delays, 2 hour flight and then another two to three hours by different trains) I would like to do a bus station. Hope that is ok :)

    Omg! That’s a lot of traveling!!! Hope it was worth it. :smile:

    Hey @BuildnShare I will not be able to make the bakery. I'm not a strong builder and would definitely need as much time as possible but between it being my birthday weekend and me working 6 days next week I won't be able to make the deadline.... I really love this challenge and I will definitely participate in the next one

    ENTRY DETAILS: Lakeview Fair was recently built for the people over a small lake in the city. It features a circus tent funhouse, game booths, and dining, as well as a dance floor and hedge maze. It's a fun community hangout, with an autumnal theme, hence why the pictures are taken in that season.

    This is my first time entering a BnS- thank you! Also, I was wondering if anyone could let me know how to properly embed images. I can't seem to figure it out :/

    Since you're using Imgur, when you're looking at your album, tap the arrow in the upper right corner of yur screen shot. One of the options will be Get Share Links. Select that, then the Copy button by BBCode {Forums] and paste it into the messsage.


    By the way, your fair is so pretty and creative!

    Looks good. I like the dark tables better than the light ones Maybe you could do some sort of pattern ont he floor usng diffeent colors?

    And it's more whimsical than the drive-in movie theater I'm working on.

    @sgemm What a lot of great ideas for stalls 😊 Love the autumnal theme with the pumpkin carving and the hedge maze.....you fit so much in!

    @CaleSims how cute that each grade class is numbered! I think you are right colour could be the way to go, maybe a different colour for each grade? Could tie it in with SimTresa’s suggestion of a patterned floor

    And totally on your wavelength @SimTresa, my theatre is also determinedly refusing to be whimsical 🤣🤣

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Newcrest Drive-in Theater was established decades ago and has somehow maintaned its popularity into the modern age. It remains small and intimate to give the impression that getting in is special. Families come to treat their kids to amovie and get them out of the house in the summer. Teens like to hang out here with thier dates, though many are more interested in making out than actually watching the movies.

    LOT COST: I built it on Avarice Acres and it fits lovely on a 40x30 lot. However, for the purposes of the Gallery and that it could be seen properly, and not from a side view, I uploaded it on Twin Oracle Point, which is 50x40. The former costing $3k. The latter costing $8.5k.

There are also Male and Female Lavatories on this floor.

    The 3rd Floor features Adult/Teen Reading Areas. Chess Tables, a Computer Lab and M/F Lavatories.

    The 4th Floor contains standard Reading Rooms with cut-outs looking onto the 3rd Floor areas.

    Awesome Fair Grounds @sgemm I love what you did with making the game areas/games of chance displays. Very creative.
    Very cute little Drive-Im @SimTresa Nice landscaping.

    @BuildnShare If the Bakery has not been claimed yet ( I did not see it as such on the main list) I think I may have the time to do it. I have an idea I started, that seems to be working out, in a whimsical way. It's going to take appoximately 234,547 cookies to do it, but as long as I don't get hungry for cookies in the next week and pass out from cookie overdose, I should be able to finish.

    I think maybe a bit more fun in the coloring would be good for the build :D you are doing good so far!

    DETAILS: This is the bus stop at Oak Alcove. Behind it we have a little playground for any impatient kids - I wonder how many of the missed their school bus already?
    I would have liked to upload the pictures on imgur, but for some reason that side isn't working for me right now. So flickr it is, which means the describtions are only visible when actually clicking on the picture :/ It's a bit of a bummer, I like it when they are actually in the slide show. Sorry about that...
