Gorgeous day out. We went the last weekend of the fair, the theme for that weekend was "fairies". Apparently each weekend has a different theme so people come in corresponding costumes.
She totally posed for me! Nice :)
My friend Nancy dressed up as a Gypsy, too cute!
Is it creepy that I was taking pictures of peoples costumes for inspiration?
Ha! He dressed up his chair as a horse!
My friend Bob was really good at this! They gave him a token to come back later to compete with other people that were able to get most of their spears in the hay, but we weren't planning on staying that late.
Hmm, no contest for what I was going to eat!
Wait, got distracted by this awesome bird.
Okay, now back to my pork chop ON A STICK. (Irony intended of juxtaposing parrot photo with pork chop photo. I love animals, but I'm also a carnivore.)
This comedian was really great, we missed the first part of the show but he was super hilarious. I wish I had more ones cause I was only able to donate a few dollars at the end. Loved his sarcasm!
These parasols were so pretty!
We decided to race turtles even though I'm very conflicted about using animals for sport. They clanged the bell and sprayed them with water to make them move :/ So it made me sad. I picked number six.
My friend Nancy spotted this and of course I had to get some photos next to it.
Who totally got a flower from a knight? This girl! They use rescued horses for their shows so of course we had to donate some money afterwards. Plus they put on a really entertaining show. We loved cheering for our guy and booing the others!
Look at that crowd!
She was trying on hats and this one was just super silly with the large tassels on either side!
Of course we had to get a photo under this sign, who could resist?
I had an awesome time and really hope to make it again next year. My friends want to try to make it on the Octoberfest weekend. Sounds good to me!
