Last day of the Family Af-Fairs! 

I have to admit, I am feeling very bittersweet about the last day of the 2019 Fair. I was driving around the Fairgrounds this morning on the golf cart and I was looking at all of the things I missed out on this year! You would think after working all 18 days of the fair, I would feel like I have experienced everything!

Since I am feeling very nostalgic on this final Fair day, I should probably inform you on the free Fair activities I enjoyed as a kid. My favorite part of summer was coming to the Fair with my whole family on a warm day and participating in everything it has to offer. It was such a joy growing up going to this fair and I am amazed by all of the innovative activities they have for kids. Sometimes I wish I could go back to when I was five and the petting zoo felt like it was my own personal zoo!

Pig Races
