The county fair is this week. We usually head over atleast once to grab some fair food and see the exhibits and talk to old friends. That's also usually done on Friday of fair week. (Our big date night!) But we're going to Chicago this weekend and we'll be gone on Friday. So the weather looked like tonight would be the best night to go. It was pleasantly warm and breezy. Perfect fair weather!
We always run into many people we know..but guess who was the first one we saw? Yep, Donna herself trying to sneak on a child's ride...Hey, get a ticket!
Ok, she did have this little monster with her....I like your face painting Bryden!
For the first time ever...I've lived in Ashland for 35yrs...I entered something in the fair. Some photos. I was pleased to see I took 4th place in two categories. I wasn't expecting to win anything, but it was fun to enter and I love the little ribbons! I couldn't find one of my entries though. I did find one that sure looked like mine but it had someone Else's' name on it. Hmmmm....not sure but I'm going to check it out again. These were the two that won.
A good reason to go to the fair is for some really "bad for you" food. We sort of bombed out though this year. This sandwich wasn't very good...the onion rings weren't bad, but the strawberry shake was horrible and had to dumped...I should have stuck by my old reliables...greasy fries and apple dumplings. Thank goodness there's always next year!
We always have to stop at this building. It has the fruits, veggies and other farm products...like this maple syrup section. It also has a few other oddities that always make me laugh.
That will make a ton of pie or one big momma jack-o-lantern!
When is a pumpkin not a pumpkin? When it's Nemo.
Please tell me this didn't grow in someones garden.
I get the judging of fruits, veggies, and other farm crops...But I didn't realize they had a category for dressed up cement geese. Only in rural America.
Darth Vader Goose? I love his light saber..or should I say bubble wand saber? Too funny!
I really did have to laugh at this....seriously, they won first place!
The rides looked very colorful at night.
I told Jack that if I went up on this ride I could get some cool pics. Once he quit laughing he said "OH YEAH! I can see you up there shaking like crazy trying to take a shot! Hahahaha! I hate it when he's right....I'm not fond of heights, spinning, leg dangling a million miles above the earth, and fair rides that are put together by God only knows who...I'll stick to ground shots.
A big wave goodbye from Gorilla girl! Hope you enjoyed our county fair!
