For general ambient shots, shoot in aperture priority, auto ISO, wide open and just grab some overall shots.  Probably use center-weighted metering, or spot metering.

For some fun motion shots, set it on Manual exposure, set your ISO low (200), stop the aperture down a stop or two, and then set the shutter speed to get the proper exposure (or maybe slightly underexposed).  Brace your camera for a long shutter speed and get some fun shots of the ferris wheel or merry go round.

Finally, take your 35-100 and zoom in on some of the details of the merry go round, or the people working the rides.
