Come Ye to the Fair

carnival scene

It's the season for county fairs and today we toured the Warren County Fair near Front Royal. The weather was cool for August because of recent rain. 

We walked 1.6 miles through the fair. (Yes, I have an app to tell me that.) It would be more fun if we had kids along.

  1. Fairs are definitely more fun with kids, but I have to say I loved your photos. So many happy memories evoked. The orange panda bear reminds me of my father winning a teddy bear at our local fair when I was a child. He spent far more that the price of the bear before he was able to win a second one, so that my sister and I would each have one.

  2. Looks like a fun carnival. They make the rounds of volunteer fire depts here. The kiddies would love the rides. Happy weekend!

  4. I'm reminded of the fall fairs we had in the nearest town when I was growing up. Here in Ontario they tend to do these in September and October instead of summer.

  6. Nice photos. We haven't been to any fairs recently since our boys are grown up and out of the house now.
