Fairly sure it’ll be interesting
After close to 10 years of avoiding the local fairs, we’re biting the bullet (and an occasional deep fried whatever the rage is) and going to one tomorrow. I spied a few fairs in our area and decided we should go for it. It’s high cal day and we’re going to split whatever we want to try and agree if we don’t like it, we throw it away. I know there is an elephant ear in my future, I haven’t had one in years and they were always my favorite. I’m hoping I can find a kiddie size one because the hubby doesn’t care for them and I don’t like funnel cakes so those will be all us. But the beauty about eating in moderation means I don’t have to eat the whole thing just because it’s there! How novel! I also know there will be much more walking than we typically get on Saturdays so I’m hoping between that and water being the beverage of choice, we won’t feel the effects too much.
I don’t know that we’re able to fit/ride all of the carnival rides just yet but I’m thinking we could maybe do something like the tilt a whirl and I don’t know maybe the Round Up? I know there are people bigger than us who don’t care what the weight limits are but I don’t care to end up on YouTube or the 11 o’ clock news! I know next year we’ll be in a much better position to not have to worry about it. (Man I can’t wait for that day!) I don’t anticipate we’ll be there too long since it’s going to be hot and humid as a mofo out there and I am NOT a fan! 55 days til Fall but who’s counting?
Are you a fair goer? What are your favorite treats that you can only get at a fair? Favorite rides?
