One more Fair post

I know this is loooong overdue but things got off schedule with the hexie hop. We'll get back to quilting and current events next week :^)

Make sure you start with the Antiques Division. Mom and Dad run the building and apparently in just a few more years it's mine to take over. Yikes! Dad also helps with the antique engines outside. This is a restored sawmill.

4-H is a very large part of our local county and the Fair - the kids can enter exhibits in a wide variety of categories and have their own building for those exhibits, including a special area for exhibits being sent to the State Fair. On the day I took pictures it was Dairy Day and there was free ice cream!

Animals are also a large part of the 4-H program and there are plenty to look at: rabbits, pigs, chickens, goats, sheep, horses and cows. We are a dairy county with more cows than people!

Don't forget to check the produce section since we like our veggie gardens and canned goods!

After looking at exhibits, it's time to cruise the midway. Take advantage of a ride or two with the kiddos (they can buy a pay-one-price wrist band and supervising adults ride free!) and then find something to eat. If you can't find *something* to eat you didn't look very hard :) My personal favorite? Elephant ears and black and white milkshakes!

Looks a lot like our county fair, but I'm pretty sure we have more people than cows--we still have a lot of cows, but there are definitely more people.
Okay, what's an Elephant Ear?

I've had to google both elephant ears and black and white milkshakes, and I'm not totally certain what either are from the results I got. But the fair looks like a lot of fun!

what a wonderful day out so much to see and admire, not so sure my tummy would cope with the rides though.

It looks like a good, old-fashioned county fair - my favorite. Thank you for posting - our Cincinnati county fair used to be like that but it is just a shadow of its former self nowadays.

Wow -- what fun! The day we went to our Lincoln County fair, they were showing goats and miniature ponies! Oh how fun that was!! Looks like typical fun fair life!! :)

I SO appreciate the good people who work to provide exhibits (County Fair entries, the antique saw mill, bring their animals) for all to see. It's a great deal of work, but it makes the fair "come alive" for us and for our children.
