I'm so excited to go the the fair again this year! My little sister always comes out from South Dakota to stay while the fair is going on. This year, I am taking off a few days from work to go enjoy myself. Normally, I only make it up after work and miss all the livestock shows.
My son and I were discussing what food we had to have while the fair is in town. Chicken on a stick, corn dogs, funnel cakes, Protivin brats, Iowa Cattleman's ribeye sandwich, a blooming onion, curly fries, a shake from the MooMobile - how can you decide??! I think we'll just have to get it all :)
I'm really excited about the spray paint artist being there again this year. A few years back, we watched them paint for what seems like forever! They are just so cool and you can't even believe your eyes how they could do something with a few cans of paint, garbage can lids and cardboard. Crazy awesome stuff.
Last year, we went to the pre-concert party in the beer tent on Saturday night for the first time. It was a blast! They had scavenger hunts, pass the lemon, etc. and my husband even got into it. We're definitely looking forward to that again this year!
You can learn more about the fair here. Have a great evening!
