About four days after visiting the Common Ground Fair upstate, Mr. Cleaver and I stopped by the Cumberland County Fair on Wednesday.
This was much more similar to the fairs I grew up with. There were rides:
(I totally loved this girl, her poor car kept getting stuck, which is totally what would happen to me.)
There were games:
(Neither of us hit the bell)
There were prize-winning livestock:
and a blacksmith demonstration:
(The smithy even gave us one of the hook he made)
The weather was again, perfect and I had a fantastic time. Even though I ate too much fried dough, my faith in the county fair is totally restored.
Next up on the fall activity list: apple-picking!
