For Candice….maybe a new trend? Barefootin’ at the fair.



Wurlitzer pipe organ….fun!


Sid, ever hard of this make?




Pioneer Village was very fun and neat…lots of nostalgia.





Very old Coke and Pepsi syrup bottles.




Almost twice my age and sharp, witty and handsome! Hope I can be that happy at 91!

New ride on the mid-way. Looks to be about 4-5 stories high. WE did not ride it. It goes upside down and around. Scary!!!

I had Cheesy F. Baby from the Grilled cheese Food truck. It has Buffalo Chicken on it. It was good, but not quite enough for $9 (with drink and fries).

Looks like “Saturday In The Park” at the free stage tonight. It was a perfect evening for an outdoor concert and the fair.

Our traditional Delwey Family favorite and MUST ride anywhere we go to a fair! We got some AWESOME spins in, but I think they need to oil the tracks! We worked hard to get the G-forces going.

Daddy and Jessica BEFORE they rode the fast, spinning, scary ride.

Pioneer Village was deserted when we went back to the car. It is so neat to see all of the machinery that made our world today.

A very old oak tree on the fairgrounds ( I picked up a few acorns for a keepsake). Of course!

Headed home! It was a great time…although the crowd was almost more than we wanted to deal with. We got parked and got out easily. We love to make this our “end of summer” outing. Summer 2013, already coming to an end. Here to a wonderful year!
