PhotoStory Friday: County Fair!

Every year in early August our city hosts a fun little Cultural Affair. Dancers and food are brought in from all over the world. We also have local entertainment- my girls got to dance as well.







We also have a traveling carnival that sets up in the middle of the street next to the park. Strange place, I know but it works.









In the park people set up booths and sell everything and anything. One booth will fry anything from potatoes to candy bars and Twinkies. (yuck!) The potatoes were tasty though.












One thing I learned as we walked around all afternoon in 100+ degree weather is that if you want to feel normal- go to the county fair!

Fried Oreos are good, and fried snickers, but well, they are just fried little heart attacks waiting to get ya! I love local fairs and festivals! Great post!

Oh those county fairs are true treasures...I always feel like a freak, because I am 40, have no children and have come to the fair alone, plus I am photographing everthing...I'm the creepy old woman coveerd in cathair who's talking to herself in the fried twinkie line.

One of my favorite things to do, and I never miss it, is go to my annual hometown carnival! I still sometimes see people I went to school with, some of them seem to be stuck in the seventies. I am happy to get some fried dough and find a spot to people watch!
