When I discovered the fair had free parking I bought myself a $6.00 ticket from the grocery store. Yesterday I headed over to the fair to make use of the aforementioned ticket. I was interested in the fair not for the midway with all it's con games, rickety rides, and outrageously priced food. There was nothing for purchase that I could see that was under $2.00 for beverages and when it came to food get ready to pay $4.00 or more, mostly more, for each item you would like to consume. A meal all told could easily cost $12.00 per person. My wish is that the consumer would always refuse to pay rip off prices so as not to encourage the greed. The nefarious concession operators would drop their prices like a rock in no time if folks would simply refuse to pay anything other than common sense prices for what has to be the cheapest, unhealthiest food on the planet.
here is an example of the pure landfill fodder that was on hand to entice the cash from the pockets.
Now on to why the fair is a worth while event to visit.
There were a wide variety of animals at this years fair and that was my motivation for taking the time to go!
There was a good sampling of farm animals at this years event. Seeing all those hard working farmers and there fine animals it really made me grateful for all they do to keep this country and in fact the world fed! God bless all those who are good stewards of the creatures He has provided us for our survival and companionship!
The highlight of my visit was stepping back in time at the Cracker Country exhibit. It was a delight to walk on the green rye grass under old Oak trees as the Spanish Moss swayed in the cool breeze and the harmonious sounds of Blue Grass music play in my ears!
