This year we went on the Saturday- because we had a race on Sunday (my next recap post) and the weather was supposed to be nicer on Saturday. It turned from pretty ok summer weather plunging deeply into October-type weather in oh, a week or so. Naturally, the week I took off work, of course.
Now that I am back to work, it is summer again. WTF>! Effing..grumble…grrr….
Anyways, the fair.
I wouldn’t go on a Saturday again. It seemed like all the activities I really loved – miniature horse show, llama packing obstacle course, SuperDogs courses- weren’t running. The horse show rings were empty for most of the afternoon, light horse and heavy horse shows. Blah.
So, there wasn’t as much to look at.
The animals were great though, I love bunnies! The vegetables and fruit displays were neat, as always. I did hear some grumbling about the judging at the pie displays, hahah, I guess judging is subjective no matter what you’re judging–rabbits, horses, hunters and pies! Hahah.
We didn’t go on any rides, as the lineups were totally crazy and quite frankly I hate rides mostly…They make me feel really sick, I guess my motion-sickness has gotten worse as I got older. Can’t say I miss them that much though! They are also mega pricey.
The weather was so chilly that we had to go back to the car to grab our jackets. I know, crazy eh? Usually it is so hot!
I was glad we went at all but I wouldn’t recommend Saturday to people. Plus, the horse show part was so boring, walk/trot classes only. Sunday is clearly the best day for the fair.
