{Our State Fair}

Wednesday, August 20, 2014









"Our State Fair is a great state fair
Don't miss it, don't even be late
{our State Fair is great}
It's dollars to donuts at our State Fair
It's the best State Fair in the state..."
- State Fair, 1945

Yesterday's eats included fried Derby pie, two corny dogs, a gyro sandwich, roasted corn, homemade
ice cream, local fudge, and a caramel apple that was washed down with a lemonade shake-up.
My. belly. is. still. full.
We also watched the great doberman dog show, saw a 217 lb watermelon, and were inspired to 
enter our honey and homegrown veggies into next year's competition.
The most entertaining event {besides the 4-H exibit} was the FMX stunt show.
Dudes who can soar through the air on dirt bikes to Guns N' Roses "Welcome to the Jungle"
are M-A-G-I-C-A-L.
I can only make one conclusion after yesterday's adventure :
Kentucky, your State Fair is a great state fair ...
It's the best State Fair in the state.

Happy Wednesday!
What's your favorite thing to do and eat at the fair?

Beautiful photos! My two favorites are baked potatoes and cream puffs. They are both Wisconsin State Fair traditions.

We don't have things such as State Fairs :(
But, from your eats I'd choose the corny dog and lemonade. Fer suuure!

I went to Indiana State Fair while visiting a friend last month (first state fair of my life). I completely fell in love with fried pickles... they aren't common up in the Northeast, but oh my yum. Delish!

Eat!!! I love to eat fried everything at state fairs including cheesecake! :) It's also amazing to see all of the quilting and handiwork at the fair. So fun!
