A Visit to Dane County Fair, July 20-24

The Dane County Fair is over for another year. For some, like our daughter Sally, it is a high-light of the year.

Some people go to the fair for the food:

Some go for the rides and games:

Some love to see the 4-H'er exhibits:

The decorating is amazing.

The flowers are a favorite

Tables and tables of artwork

But we went (like many families) because our daughter had an animal at the fair:

Mickey's head is often down because of the delicious hay

Mark with Mickey. He helped with some of the heavy lifting, especially the clean-up when fair was over.
Thanks to Bristol Blazers' leader, Carmen Fritz, and other hard-working parents, Sally was able to participate at Dane County again this year. The leaders, the Fair Superintendents and many of the parents devote long hours to allow the kids the opportunity. I'm amazed at their sacrifice.

Oh, thank you so much for this colorful, fun, and non-sweaty visit to the fair!

It was definitely a warm week. Lots and lots of sweating.

Lori, this was almost as good as being there! And congratulations to blue-winners Sally and Mickey!

Lori said...

Thanks, Robin. I know you'd have loved seeing all the horses!

Sandy said...

Congratulations to Sally on all her hard work! Great job on making us feel apart of the fair. Wish I could have been there!

Sandy, We had Atlanta-like weather, so you would have done fine. I was melting...
