The Wonderful State Fair

“Our state fair is a great state fair,
Don’t miss it, don’t even be late.
It’s dollars to donuts
That our state fair
Is the best state fair in our state.”

~”Our State Fair “by Rodgers and Hammerstein

That time of year for us northerners has come…The Fair.  An exciting event that is both the epitome of summer as well as it’s end.

 I have always loved the Fair.   And even though I may not go very often, the memories I have of funnel cakes, curly fries, corn dogs (yes, most of my memories surround food), as well as the games and the picturesque ride on the ferris wheel, will always stay with me.

In honor of this wonderful tradition, I have found some fun Fair nostalgia to share!


How interesting that the decorations on the wreath are cattle heads… 🙂


The cars, the fashion, the ferris wheel… much fun!  I wonder how long those ladies’ hats will stay on their heads?

Stunning art on this World’s Fair poster….


This ferris wheel is absolutely amazing!  


Proud young ladies showing their creations and accompanying ribbons.  


The quintessential Fair food: cotton candy!

So take the grandparents, the kiddies, and anyone else you can find, and head out for a wonderful day at the Fair…maybe you will see this couple! 😉
