In America, among everybody I have ever spoken to about it, a carnival is
like a circus but without the big acts. No high wire or elephants, just
rides and sideshows and games of "skill." Rio de Janeiro's "Car-ni-VAHL" is
a completely different animal.

The request for the new word {ghIchDep} was "traveling amusement park".

The canon definition for it is "fair, funfair" (which I understand so
far as a traveling "Disneyland") but also "carnival" and "circus".

I'm just checking that I'm getting this right; "carnival" reminds me of
dancing people in the street, as you might know from Brasil, and also
disguised in Germany nd other countries.

"Circus" makes me think of a big tent with clowns, artists and dancing

Is that correct? Or do americans use "circus" to refer to a funfair?
