I love State and County Fairs. I love the food, the barns, the oxen pulls, the horse shows and people watching. I don’t like the rides. I used to when I was young and carefree. Now I worry too much about, “what happens if this thing was not assembled correctly?” That and I get motion sickness – wicked bad.
This past weekend we had family visit us (yay!) and we ventured to our county’s fair. They went on some rides, we watched some of the oxen pull and we found some great food. I found a great little vendor that was serving fresh, local food. I had a broccoli & cheese quesadilla and it was so good! It did not put me into a greasy-food coma afterwards.
The kids were able to order fresh sandwiches (that didn’t break the bank) from another vendor. The poor man who was serving us was filling in for his wife and didn’t know the prices or how to make some of the fancier sandwiches like cheese, bacon and apple.
She whipped the- very nice and extremely grateful- man into shape and even showed him how to twirl the tongs.
The kids have decided that they are going to use all of the spare change that we collect in our change jar to go towards the next fair we attend this season. They were not able to buy all the junk food that they wanted to this time so they want to ensure a sugar high next time.
Any suggestions on which fair we should we attend next?
