Anyone that’s followed my blogs for any amount of time knows how much I love the Kentucky State Fair. (The proof? Fair Days 2011 and 2010.) I usually go to the Fair every year with my girl, Abby, and we stay all day. All. Day. But we missed our Fair Day last year; I had just started a new job and Abby was traveling over the weekends. So we decided to make up for it this year and our friend Kelly joined us… and it really was a great day with my girlfriends.
Fair Day consists of seeing any of the shows we want to see (Abby and I happen to love the duck herding Border Collies – and both agree the racing pigs was the all-time best show), walking through most of the exhibits (at least all the food entries, the photography and art walls, and themed Christmas trees), shopping the flea market and finishing Fair Day by watching a band and enjoying an adult beverage.
We started early, arriving at 11am, and made the best of our time together. We took several photos… of exhibits, each other and selfies… and we made sure that we didn’t care what other people thought… I have to say those eleven hours spent at the Kentucky State Fair made this year a favorite for sure!
1. The dairy cows were in abundance the day we decided to go. Moo. :) 2. Dioramas… from The Walking Dead… winners in my eyes!
3. We visited all of the protective services booths, including the FBI. I also made away with a police officer badge sticker I wore all day.
4. A steam-punk circus group – I think the contraption they did their acrobats on was the most impressive part. 5. Kelly and her Lemon Shake.
1. Abby and I with Freddy Farmer. 2. Kelly and Abby – not the first photo to be taken in front of the fountain. 3. Group selfie #1.
4. Group selfie #2 – and a much better attempt thanks to Abs. 5. There was an unpleasant smell on our tractor ride… and it wasn’t the livestock!
We finally found people to take our picture – thank you, Earl the Police Officer for visiting (and putting up) with us as well as taking our picture. (And thank you for the ride back to our car!!) And a big thank you to the sweet girl who snapped our photo in front of the Midway – it’s definitely my favorite photo from the day. Now whose ready for Fair Day 2014?!?!
