We decided to head to the fair this morning. If we went between 10 and 11 am, tickets were only $2 each instead of $11. We anticipated that it would be insanely busy on a Saturday morning, but it was almost deserted (compared to what it normally is like when we go).
Our first stop was the petting zoo . . .
This wallaby had a joey in her pouch!
What would the fair be like without all of the “gross” food creations??!
Alright. A little camel trivia.
Which of these two camels would win a “beauty contest?” (seriously)
If you answered the second one, you were right. Floppy-lipped camels are considered confident and dominant and “most popular”. They would win the beauty contest . . . lips down!
Speaking of down . . . my comrades were beginning to lose their momentum. We decided to split up at this point. David and I headed out to forage around the rest of the fair, seeing what we could see, while the rest headed to the pig race stands to sit and wait for the show.
David and I enjoyed the air-conditioned Fine Arts building. These two oil paintings below really struck me as being so “alive” and homey-feeling. I really love the use of “light”.
Soon our feet began to get sore, so we looked for some shade. We ended up sitting for a spell and watching the “pottery-making people”.
Then we roamed a few more minutes before meeting up with the rest of the gang.
More bizarre fair food . . .
They had on display, a beam from the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
This was new for us to see. Quite entertaining to watch! Human-sized hamster balls.
It was a fun day!
