Don't forget Wednesday night is the first night of the Texas State Forest Festival, and it is also KTRE night.
Workers have been busy getting their rides together, like Jamie Sanborn and Dan Shelby from Wisconsin. For the past five years they have been hitting the road together, traveling the state of Texas, working at carnivals. They say the carnie life has its ups and downs.
Shelby said, "I like it because I get to be with her all day, but then the downside is that sometimes she gets on my nerves."
Shelby jokingly talks about his girlfriend of five years.
