I love fairs… Everyone is happy, excited, gets to be a kid again. When I was a kid we went to the Del Mar Fair in San Diego the fifth largest in the nation. We got the opportunity to go this past fourth of July and watch the legendary Smokey Robinson perform. WE did it all. Ate giant turkey legs, crème puffs, kabobs, deep-fried who knows (thank goodness my digestive system was feeling better). We didn’t stop at the food we attended a wine festival at the fair and walked the fair’s harvesting garden were we learned how to grow our own vegetables and fruits. We watched the shows, animals and strolled through the many exhibits. I loved it! Above are pictures from that adventure.
Currently, the fair is in Bakersfield. The Kern County fair is one of my favorites because it was where Ryan and I had our first official date. So, we must attend! It’s tradition:) We are going this Monday and I am getting excited I can’t wait to see Hanson, the animals, and the exhibits. Not to mention the food! My yearly sugary funnel cake…. (note to self don’t wear black.)
