I'm trying to figure out what would compel you to take that photo.
It's a capture of their spirited playfulness in the moment ... it tells the story of their lightheartedness in context with a hinting @ the transformation the festival (i.e. jus' funnin') has at taking people away from their normal lives.
It's a "people pic" (real people) ... not a "pretty pic" (pretend people) ... more of a PJ thing. Seeing a mom being goofy enough that it 'tickles' her daughter is an emotive human inter-relationship dynamic ... which also happens to include the (unseen) photographer that she is "playing" to. The woman in the bg is probably a merchant wishing people would buy more of her wares and instead isn't as enthused by their antics at the moment.
Definitely a "react" shot vs. a "thought" shot ... driven by the infectiousness of her spirited play. That, and when someone is friendly enough to "play to the camera", I think it is fitting to show them a little friendly respect / reciprocal acknowledgment by letting them hear the "click" so to speak, even if it is a shot I normally might not have intended to take ... it's an "Americana" real people, being real, thing (imo) ... both shooter and subject.

Just stretching oneself, you gotta start somewhere ... anywhere, just start.
You gotta "love" those EYES ...
