Fair Time.

One of the best things about the fall is the fair. Somehow I don't go very often, but I always love it when I do.  Yesterday you could get in to the Dixie Classic Fair for free if you brought five cans of food to donate to the food bank.  So of course, that's what we did!  

Our first stop was to find food because we arrived starving.  Donny went with the mission of finding the Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburger, which is exactly what it sounds like.  It's a bacon cheeseburger with two doughnuts for buns.  It looked disgusting, but he loved it!
They had this sign hanging from their trailer, haha! 
(You could get a bologna burger on the "doughnut bun" too.)
After we ate, we meandered our way through the place, taking in the sights.
They had a bunch of bunnies on exhibit, including this GIANT bunny.  Seriously-- it was a Flemish Giant rabbit.  It probably weighed 20 lbs.
One of my favorite things at the fair are the pig races!  They do three different races with different breeds of pigs, but they're all so little!  Their prize?  An oreo.  So cute.
See Wilbur poking his head out?? 
Baby potbelly pig! 
Then we went to the midway...
Donny made the executive decision that we were riding the Ferris wheel.
Y'all, the Ferris wheel is scary.  Look how tall it is!!  
And you're not enclosed in these swinging, hanging baskets!!
I may have spent most of the ride squeezing Donny's arm, but I made it off the death trap Ferris wheel alive.  Hallelujah.  Donny got some pretty pictures while we were up there.  I couldn't do much but sit still hoping not to jostle our precarious seats.
Brandon Heath and Mandisa in concert at the Grandstand-- 
we got to hear some of it from atop the Ferris wheel!
After we made it safely back to earth, we walked through the exhibitions then headed home.  Pretty fun night!


  1. I love county fairs! Ours comes to town this weekend and I can't wait to go!

  2. This makes me wish we lived close and could go to a fair together!! Missing y'all..

  3. I had a really difficult time focusing after seeing the donut burger.

  4. I want that burger, no matter how disgusting it is!!!! Also, I am NOT a fan of the ferris wheel. And getting to hear Brandon Heath AND Mandisa?! Very cool :)

  5. I don't get the donut burgers but I have heard they are so good. That ferris wheel was at least really pretty!

  6. I'd give the donut hamburger a try! It looks tasty!

  7. That donut hamburger thing looks so gross. I wonder how many calories are in it! Haha!

  8. OMG.... a donut BURGER?! Looks like an amazing time! I wanna go to a fair so bad!!!
