Things I like about the county fair

1. Milkshakes!
2. Craft, needlework, and photography exhibits
3. Dancing - when my daughter was younger, her dance
studio would perform on Tuesday evening. It was
a fun, low key performance for the girls,
followed by fun with friends.
4. Running into friends
5. Food - funnelcakes, ice cream,chicken barbecue, and
the list goes on
6. Fireworks


1. Watching the little kids watch the baby animals.
2. The 4H exhibits
3. Seeing the food, art work, crafts, etc. which are being judged
4. Seeing things through my granddaughters eyes!

Things I enjoyed about the County Fair:
1.Competing. This was a family effort. The kids started baking at age five for the fair, and winning. We all baked,some of us have entered in the drawing/painting/cross-stitching and photography categories, too. Hannah won Jr Homemaker of the year twice.
2. Watching the judging. Making friends with your competition and cheering everyone on.
3. Enjoying the auction of the baked goods after the Thursday competition.seeing how much the best of show items sold for.
4. Winning ribbons. Always fun.
5. Roaming the fair grounds on Mondays while Monday judging is going on, safe enough to let the kids roam on their own.
6. Gyros, Fresh Lemonade, cotton candy, deep fried anything (well, some limits) and the very best milkshakes made by the 4H club...so many flavors!
7. Music...this year Big and Rich, last year Josh Turner. Local fiddle competitions. Cloggers and square dancers.
8. Live animal kids shows, one year it was elephants, another camels, magic shows, comedy for kiddies.
9. Draft Pony pulls.
10. Working the booths. Have worked for both Habitat for Humanity and Right to Life.

Guess I should go see what the deadline is for this year, bound to be any day now. Can't compete in the baking now that we are "pros", but one category for decorated cakes we can...maybe this year we'll give that a shot against the other "pros"! or maybe some other crafty things....

1. Tractor and truck pulls
2. Concerts
3. Food - fried stuff, sno-cones, BBQ corn and ethnic food.
4. Walking around people watching.
5. Last year at the fair there was an heckler at the dunking booth. He was so obnoxious it made you watch.
6. The military reserves has a area with a helicopter, rock climbing wall or a boxing ring with those poles with a big stuffed box on each end to knock each other down. Each year it's something different.
7. The farm animals, petting zoo, 4H area.
8. The lights at night and fireworks finale.
9. Sounds of the fair - screams of fright or joy.
