Has anybody seen the Google Earth aerial view/street view of Eddison Park? It was taken during last year’s Woden Valley Festival. You can see the rides, stalls and crowds as well as the full car parking areas. Probably if anybody from interstate or overseas sees it they might think there is a permanent carnival in the park.
