County Fair

The queens always get in each shot




I  could not pass this up, it just looked like I should be part of this fun. I laughed later seeing a couple of boys watching me as I set my timer and ran into the picture.










The county fairs are a starting point to show agriculture projects and hope to win a standing to go to state fair.It is a big thing in all the 99 counties in Iowa and fun to see what industrious kids we have in the state.Temps were unbearable, but the fun  makes it more bearable.I have purchased a number of projects and always enjoy going to many of them around me.

  4. I love going to the fair. Of course I only go to the one right here in town and skip the bigger county fairs. Ours will be coming up next month

  5. Awww! Great pictures!! I miss going to the county fairs and seeing all the animals. I feel sorry for the animals when it's so hot.

  6. This was a fun post. I was never in 4H, but I have an admiration for those who participate in it. And you're to be commended for supporting it, in spite of the awful heat we've been experiencing.

  14. We have attended several of these local fairs since moving to the VA eastern shore. They are a real showcase for 4H youngsters and always great fun to attend.
