I went to the fair with my daughter Ellie this year. I’d love to tell you all about it, but she did such a good job on her own blog site, I’ll let her tell you herself. Click HERE for Ellie’s experience of a perfect fair on a perfect day, including her video coverage of the incredible pig race!
And when you get a chance rent the classic film from 1945, “State Fair.” We watched it together last night and enjoyed it thoroughly. I can’t believe people used to get that dressed up to stroll the midway! Or, that a whole crowd of people would suddenly break into song at the prompting of the band leader. Those were the days, weren’t they?
