~The GREAT State Fair~
Every year, I attend the State Fair. I love everything about it, even though I don't care for the world famous corny dogs. I do like the nutty ice cream bars the best.
This year, Handsome and I hit what we consider the highlights. First up, the automobile show where we tested the new Jeeps because Jeeps are my favorite drive. Upon exiting that building, we moseyed over to Big Tex, the icon of the Fair. Last year, he literally flamed out. Devotees of his were so upset. Would Tex come back? When? No worries. Tex was rebuilt and debuted this year in record-breaking time. Here he is:
A must-see for me is the Creative Arts building. The display cases are full of entries. One wall is lined with photography. Next to that one are the canned goods. On this day, the judges were tasting cakes. This photo is of my friend's prize winning felted scarf:
Handsome munched on his favorite corny dog while we made our way around the midway and the rides to land in front of the newly renovated Cotton Bowl:
And ultimately, ended up at Big Tex again. The crowd was even bigger than before. We done all we wanted to do (in record breaking time. LOL). So home we went.
How about you? Do you attend a county or state fair in your neck of the woods? What's your favorite highlight?
While hanging out with a diet Coke, Vicki Batman is fondly remembering her grandmother's first prize for her quilt and the second prize for her crocheted sweater. Vicki's next venture is a holiday story from MuseItUp Publishing, entitled THE GREAT FRUITCAKE BAKE-OFF, available in November.
