State and Country Fairs

We don't want to prematurely end summer, but a sure sign of fall fast approaching is the state and county fairs that are upcoming. As a kid there would always be field trips to the State Fair, and in the grades when one wasn't scheduled, my parents would take us kids there.

So this post comes to you with fond memories of midway rides and games, boring agricultural exhibits, fried dough, turkey legs, and the stuffed animal that was occasionally won:

August 15th - 24th

September 12th - 28th
Eastern States Exposition (The Big E)

September 28th - October 5th
