The County Fair

Scenes from our county fair. A glorious blue sky behind the ferris wheel.  We ended up spending the evening. Eating our fill of funnel cakes and cotton candy. Listening to the entertainment. Watching people being flipped upside down on rides.  Getting a henna tattoo with your daughter.

Enjoying the gorgeous end of the summer flowers.

I love visiting the animal barns. The 4-H kids are always so proud of their animals.

Baby pigs are adorable. The mama, not so much :)


For a city girl, it is fun to be a part of farm life for an evening. The county fair is always such a juxtaposition of country beauty and carnival atmosphere, and a reminder of small town America at it's best!


  1. I love the county fair up here in Michigan...all the animals are so cute!! great pictures!! :-) And yes, the funnel cakes are the best part!

    I'm visiting from Cozy Little House where you have been featured. Congratulations!!

  7. Hi Debbie, You took some nice pictures. Do you have a "real" camera or a little digital? I enjoy Brenda"s blog so much because of her photography.

    I like going to the livestock barns in the evening when it starts to get chilly... and I also enjoy the FOOD. You didn't take pictures of food ;)

  8. Hi Debbie
    I love fairs. It is even funner if you can share it with a child.
    I'm not sure I'll get to visit one this years so I enjoyed getting a glimpse of yours!

  9. Hi Debbie, I love your pictures, they are so clear, focused and close up. I often have trouble with close up focusing but you didn't, Great job. The fair really looked like a good one. Love the animals! Have a wonderful weekend. xoRobin❤
