The County Fair, ( Mahoning County Fair / Canfield Fair in Canfield Ohio) I go to starts this week and ends on Labor Day.
We bought the house Mom lives in from Pops Pop in 68, and the house is ~500 feet from the main gate.
Made some money over the years by parking cars in the yard, and I was never short for 'Fair Money'. Fact, I may park a few this year, just for old times sake.
And, of course, because the money is tax free ....
There is too much at this fair to list, I would bet anything you have seen at any fair is findable at the Canfield Fair.
One highlight was Wife winning 3 (or more?) Blue Ribbons for her counted cross stitch.
This is my first year having a dSLR so I'm looking forward to taking pictures, especially of the Steam Power area.
One of the things I'm really going to try to make it to (0700 hrs) is the Pig Iron Derby. This is where draft horses are hitched to a sled with weights, the challenge is to see how far the team can pull the sled.
Those will be some pictures. :)
I'm getting all excited about going to the fair .... I thought I would be beyond that by the time I turned 50 .... Apparently not .... THANKS ALLOT!!!!
