If you know me personally, you know I work on the local agricultural fair’s planning committee. I am in charge of booking all the music and stage entertainment. The fair was the weekend before we left for Hawaii, so I haven’t even looked at my pictures until now! Of course, I spend most of my time in the music tent, so I didn’t take too many pics, but here are a few:
Here are flowers my daughter and I grew in the yard and entered in the “small container” division.
This is the outside of my entertainment tent. As you can see, we had a beautiful day and over 20,000 fairgoers over the weekend!
Miss Piggy, a former carousel animal, is our fair mascot. This was Miss Piggy’s float for the July 4 parade this year. She’s a survivor! Though horribly burned in a freak fire we had in our office, Miss Piggy was restored by an antique restorer and carries on!
Midway at night – always magical!!
My favorite little corn cob!
There were lots of amazing animals and displays, including artisans such as blacksmiths and farriers, horse and oxen pulls, a demo derby, and even monster trucks, but I mostly was in my tent listening to musicians.
