Herkimer County Fair - The Bomb
In some ways, all county fairs are the same. We went to the Herkimer Fair today. Yup, the carnies were there, the tilt-a-wheel. the stale cotton candy. The livestock competitions featuring reluctant farm animals and exuberant farm children. We had fun in spite of ourselves.
Last year we had a great day at the Prince Edward Island Fair - which was about 3 times the size of Herkimer.
Today was about 85 degrees and even the carnies were having trouble toughing it out. Still a blast, even though the kids left yelling that they hadn't had enough fun.
