Each year out little town hosts one heck of a wonderful Fall Fair. It acts as a great anchor for Thanksgiving weekend. Our family comes from all around to take in the fair and to gather together for dinner. The kids start the countdown weeks in advance, peering in to the fair grounds each time we past, looking for signs of the set up. They make crafts, save their money to buy ride tickets, and even tolerate Mama's cooking frenzy making breads and cookies to take.
As for the weekend itself, we could happily spend all weekend there. There are lots of animals, displays, games, and rides. Not to mention the food - french fries from the Optimist Club, maple syrup cotton candy, burgers with fried onions, and apple cider or chocolate milk.
Here are a few pictures from our day at the fair with my mother, my sister, and her family.
