I am not surprised. Fairs and carnivals are notorious for shotty workmanship.

Did this carnival have a dodgem ride? The ozone from the power grid on that should cover up the odor of any other electrical arcing quite nicely.....

The duplex receptacle hanging from the top box also doesn't have a weather-proof cover or a GFCI....
