A Fair Day

The fair came to town! This is the single most exciting thing that happens in Southern Utah each year. So of course, I had to go!

I called up Kelsey and Sarah and away we went. I wasn't about to pay $6 to ride ONE ride, so we walked around, i took pictures, we played a couple of games, and of course...
Photobucket

stuffed our faces with fair food!

Corn dogs, nachos, candied apples, and funnel cakes. Only the most artery clogging, stomach aching, and heart stopping fair foods.

All I wanted, I've been craving it all Summer, was a funnel cake. And it did not disappoint!

We got a tip from some other fair go-ers that the #2 monkey was the winning one (they're always rigged). So Sarah took #2 and I... paid $3 to lose. haha!

She won, it was no competition.

And chose the most random and only "Sea World" Otter... How he ended up here, we'll never know. But that is what she chose. Now "Ollie" has a place to call home.

It was such a fun night! I kept my purse close, and my camera closer, but had a blast!

oh em gee GENTRI!! I loooooooooooove fair food! It's like seriously THE best! The people who make your food on the other hand... kinda scare me.. did they wash their hands? Ah well! That food is amazing!!

And you will NEVER catch me on the Starship 2000 OR a Ferris Wheel. I don't do well with things that spin super fast... and I am afraid of heights and of course you are stuck on that thing forEVER!

Dorien said...

Oh what a great fair! Looks like you had a great time!

Beckie said...

Awesome! I wish the fair in our county fair was as awesome as this. Over the years it's just gotten slower and slower. Last year I actually worked at ours with my old boss who was now running the Dippin Dots and Slushie cart/booth things. We got lots of free food : ] And got try a little bit of everything over the four days we worked. Yummm. But yeah, it was really slooooooow. Hopefully it'll pick up again like yours.

And speaking of your fair, your pictures turned out great! You've been using your new camera right? I can tell ; ] Really nice job!

And the roller game thing. Are those really rigged? I played a super bunch of times at Circus Circus in Reno because I wanted to win the stuffed giraffe I won often but also lost too. Maybe it's just the fair ones haha. Either way, i won the giraffe and I was a happy camper : ]

(Sorry my comment are always so long!!)

Tell me, WHY are carnivals so amazing?! There is something so nostalgically beautiful and I can't wait to get back to the US and go to a TON of them!
