fair weekend

The fair is definitely coming. This morning I took some pictures of the few tents that were already up, and the still unassembled traveling carnival. And the building called the Old Town Hall (presumably because it used to be the town hall... yes, I'm brilliant with my deductions...), which for the fair weekend is the exhibit hall. Well, this afternoon when I went in fruitless search of a furnace filter, I saw many many more tents were up, and there are banners now hanging on either side of the door to the Old Town Hall, one saying
E
X
H
I
B
I
T

and the other saying

H
A
L
L

Tonight I have to go help check things into the exhibit hall. Last year I had a paste-resist dyed dress, pickles, and jam in, myself, but this year I've been too busy (or something... "or something" is a good thing to tack onto the end of your sentences... it covers a multitude of sins...). When I go up--if I remember to put new batteries in the camera--I will take some pictures, so you can see the progress.

Here are some from this morning

Sandwich board telling that it's coming (name of town cleverly hidden from sight!)



and here is where they will have the ox pulls and the heavy horse pulls



and here is the exhibit hall, plus the scenic town water tower



(update edit from the evening! a picture of the exhibit hall with the banners on it, below)



and here is the head for one side of the giant swing that's called "Pharaoh's Fury"--the favorite ride of the younger dwellers in this wanderer's hut (but it makes me feel ill...)



and the painted sign advertising Fanelli's traveling carnival



I do so love the fair!

You bet! Our church is selling some... I should make a pie for them to sell, but I don't know if I'll get a chance. Pecan pies are pretty quick and easy--maybe I'll make one of those...

I do so love the fair too! Something so quaint and family-ish about them.

Eat a carmel apple for me!

I get to judge the vegetables! Yay!

I have a badge, even!

I think I'll have cotton candy instead, okay?

A vegatable judge!?? You so rock! That's fantastic. You so have to journal about this.

Oh, and cotton candy?? Good call! Eat a bag (or two) for me, yum yum.
