Then finally the day came where They went to the fair in their local town. They had the best night of their life. Their group had done everything from eating till they can’t eat anymore and get on many rides. They were driving home to one of the friends houses. They had the music so loud that they couldn’t hear themselves think. The group didn’t care though because they were having the night of their life.
