2008 Indiana State Fair
Yesterday I finally had the opportunity to visit the Indiana State Fair for the very first time. The State Fair is a big deal around here and I was the only person I knew who had never been. It was a beautiful day, right around 80 degrees with very little humidity.
I love the smell of cotton candy! It is one of those smells that immediately triggers childhood memories.
I spent the last hour of my time there just sitting and watching people eat.
Fair food doesn't really tempt me too much; deep fried Oreo or Snickers isn't very appetizing or appealing to me.
Deep fried Pepsi? I wonder how they do that.
I skipped the fried veggies too and had ice cream instead, that is always tempting to me. The chocolate milkshake from the Dairy Barn was delicious.
A mass planting of chili peppers.
A couple of young girls in Pioneer Village.
Getting ready for judging. They were gorgeous, especially exquisite decked out in their finery.
Well, now that I have finally been to the Indiana State Fair, I feel like a real Hoosier!
