This year, I went to the State Fair with Adrian, Alex, Cathy, Coleen, Henry, Kristi, and Tony. The theme appeared to be “The Best” and it felt like there weren’t any special exhibits, but we still managed to make the best of it. (Ha!) We checked out some different areas this year such as the cows and the horse races. We also went on 2 rides: bumper cars and Gravitron. Gravitron was a bit more thrilling than I remembered since they now open up the top for you to view the sky. It was great! And now, onto the photos from throughout the day…
Wonder how long it took this guy to paint this.
I was happy Adrian could join the group for the fair this year! :)
Lots of cows everywhere!
We tried petting one too. :)
Checked out the horse races for the first time. Pretty interesting to see how the betting goes. We were surrounded by some very lucky people!
I’ll just put this here. ;P
The majority of the group tried the world’s hottest ice cream, which includes “ghost peppers.” Henry ended up eating most of it. I didn’t want to try since I can’t handle spicy food. :X
THIS looked pretty awesome, but we decided to opt out of standing in line. They were free personalized Coke cans! T_T
A piece of the “Dream Big” exhibit, which was mostly geared towards young children.
There was a small exhibit outdoors in remembrance of September 11th. Can’t believe it has been so long already.
Pretty cool chess set creations.
Candy house. Nomnomnom!
Willy Wonka’s Golden Tickets! :D
Comic strips on display that were quite entertaining.
This tapigami section was neat! Little figures created from tape. :O
While we rested our feet, Adrian and Kristi took quick crochet and knitting lessons.
Not sure what this was made out of, but it looked awesome!
After walking all day, we decided to take a much needed rest. I guess that also means it’s selfie time. ;P
We watched the hypnotist show like we always do and this year’s was the absolute best. The hypnotist usually has the same script and same moves, but the participants were absolutely hilarious!
We were there all day!
Tried a tater twist this year. It looked cool, but only tasted alright. Was kind of like eating potato chips that weren’t crisp. :(
And we ended the night with more selfies. :)
