Timmy even mistakes it for a circus at first, which Cosmo says is wrong because "Circuses have child labor laws" while carnivals "barely have to follow the laws of physics."

* Interestingly done for purposes of CharacterDevelopment in ''Literature/RedeemingLove''. Angel runs away from her husband three times: firstly, to a brothel; secondly, to a gold mining town where she finds works as a cook; and thirdly, to the same town where she sets up a ministry to help girls who were sold into prostitution and reintegrate them into society. This is important because it shows how her character has changed over the novel�s course: at first, she�s so broken she can�t function in society, or learn how to be anything but self-destructive. The second time, she manages to be something better than an object for others� gratification, but she still isn�t happy or making something of herself. The third and final time, she is able to harness the love shown her by her husband and reach out to others, and in such a way that it remains effective even after she returns home and is finally HappilyMarried.

In RealLife this may not be the smartest course of action, as your guardians would presumably look for you here. However, if the relatives are upstanding, they might be able to help if the runaway is escaping abuse.
