Many counties have fairs this time of year. It's a great way to spend a day, it doesn't cost much, and is usually just a few minutes away from home.
My family attends each year. I enjoy walking around, seeing (not smelling) the animals, eating fattening, yummy food, and cruising the brightly colored game strip. If you weren't able to go this year, here are a few pictures to make you feel like you were there.
