Fair Time!

Friday night, I went to the fair with my friend Jennifer.  I haven't been since I was a child, and it was so much fun!!

First, we stopped to the the animals-- some were cute:

Others exotic:

And some just weird...

Then, of course, we had to eat.  True story-- I've never had a corn dog before until now.  And let me tell you-- they are delicious!  I can't believe I've been missing out all these years.

Then we went to the "Double-Figure-Eight" race, which was the highlight of the evening.  The cars run around this track in two figure-eights, trying not to crash as they come headfirst toward another car.  Of course, there were some cars that were trying to hit others, but that's half the fun.

Then, the Swifty Swine pig races.

And finally, onto the games and rides!

No, I did not win this, but I wanted to.

To cap off the night, Jennifer got me to ride the Ferris Wheel, which was no easy feat.  I'm scared to death of heights, but I made it through and safely off again.

Definitely a trip I'll be taking again next year!  


  1. I'm going to the State Fair of Texas tomorrow! It seems like everyone I follow is going to a local fair. It's that time of year!!


  2. The speedway up here does the figure 8 races with buses and one race with vehicles pulling trailers. It's hilarious.
