Fun at the State Fair

October 26, 2014

It is fall, which means Sate Fair time! I love going to the fair each year- it is the one place each year where I don’t give myself restrictions on what to eat. It is also a great place to see cool things our state is doing and people watch. One of my friends does PR for a neighboring state, so he spends a part of the fall traveling to all of their state fairs (main one, western, coastal, etc). He had been posting picture of fairs since early September, so I was ready for ours to get here this month! I went twice- once with my students and once with a group of friends. Below are some highlights from both.

Dinner on the first night, I like mine with more mustard than hotdog.

The best thing ever… deep fried cookie dough

Deep fried cookie dough. I can't take all that sugar of the normal four, so I ask for a half order.

And the old fave…

On the second trip I passes up the cookie dough and got funnel cake!

and that other time….

When Puff rode the camel.... and then smelled like camel. I love my friends, I love them even more when they let me take funny pictures of them.

And finally, taking in the sights…

Every year they do a giant sand castle. The theme this year was Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes. While the detail was amazing, I think Mother Goose is looking a little like Ben Franklin... anyone?

OK- That is the fair recap for 2014! Maybe next year I will finally try that Krispy Kreme doughnut burger? Or, maybe not…
