The fair is in town!
I just love the fair!
I can't remember a year that I have not been to the State Fair.
Growing up, one Saturday in October after the fair opened, my family and I would always rise and shine early in the morning to make the two hour trip to the N.C. State Fair in the Capital City. It was an all day event that we looked forward to each and every year. We always parked on the same street, walked through the same gate, and basically took the same route through the fair grounds each and every year. I could walk through the fair with my eyes closed. Literally!
Something changed four years ago.
I moved to a suburb right outside the Capital City.
So the two hour trip shrunk to a mere 20 minutes.
All those childhood routines of the fair changed.
Change can be hard.
And change can be GREAT!
I now go to the fair on the opening day.
I park in the lot belonging to the NC State Wolfpack located at the back of the fairgrounds. Who knew it existed?
I have no set routine.
I just go where the smells take me.
And I love it just the same.
What do you love about the fair?
This guy stated that he was showing me his best side-lol!
I will definitely be making one of these babies...a dragonfly from a staircase spindle and ceiling fan blades. How creative!
Look at the size of these pumpkins!
Homemade ice cream~ Yummy, yummy to my tummy!
Popcorn, cotton candy, candy apples, and funnel cakes. Need I say more?
The Wizard Of Oz...Yay~
and the FIREWORKS...
This year I spotted these new interests. A booth depicting my Native American Heritage and "Maple." Maple is the cousin of Ivy from Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom. Her make up was breathtaking and she moved with such grace and elegance. Also, one booth had deep fried Girl Scout Cookies. Wow! What will they come up with next?
What is your favorite part of the fair?
