A curious thing happens every time September rolls around...we get this tremendous hankering to go to our favorite fair. Not sure why it happens. Maybe it has to do with the fact that we live in a tightly packed lakefront community with nary a chicken around. The only beasts that inhabit our neighborhood space are the canine variety (in all the largest sizes) and your random three wheelers that roar down the streets at any time of day. We love where we live, but there is something very compelling about visiting the barnyard animals, crafts, and food of the fair. This fair has the distinction of being the oldest county fair in Ohio and it's the vintage parts of the fair we enjoy the most.
On our way! First stops are at the fair buildings housing all the art, crafts, baked goods, and produce...
The apples looked amazing..
One of my next favorite stops; gardening, arts and crafts.
And it's not the fair without all the animals..
Drawing inspiration from the duck barn, we have the classic "duck face" pose.
We love to support 4-H and milkshakes seem like the perfect opportunity...
The fair has a huge section complete with man made lake to showcase the park system of the northeast area of the state. They have dog demos showing retrievers in action, fishing for the kids and archery. Not to mention nature/bird displays as well as a few classes.
Music, from folk to classic band is always around the corner. This shady spot away from the midway was a great place to relax and take a break from the sweltering heat that day.
Just a glimpse inside a fabulous day but I must leave you with one more memory....
Visit the Great Geauga County Fair and you can own your own too...blessings!!
