Our annual carnival is a couple months away, right around fall festival time. This is year 3, and may or may not be our last, depending on turnout. Last year I put together a static web page with a slideshow showing some of the rides we would have, etc. I want this to be a success, and I want the website to have "pop" for lack of a better term. I have CS4 and could go about any route, but I have used Joomla alot and really love the components and modules I can use for ticket sales....but I am thinking I need something dare I say it....flashier. I am thinking of perhaps a hybrid site with some flash elements on top of a Joomla infrastructure. I would really appreciate your input, as well as any resources or even other sites I could look at for ideas. I googled for carnival templates, etc. and havent found much.
*Edit - Shortly after posting, I found http://www.floridastatefair.com/home
which is actually a Joomla site. I just dont know how to create all the items in flash, like the ferris wheel, etc.
