The BIG BIG BIG FRESNO FAIR!
October 13, 2010 § Leave a comment
I have a long standing love affair with the Fresno Fair. It runs deep and is true. There is something about the people, disgustingly wonderful food, weird crafts and displays and performances that just make my heart swoon.
A lot of north enders are afraid to head down to the fair. Seriously, it is really safe. Especially during the day. There are a ton of great things for kids to do and it’s really a memorable experience. I mean don’t stay till midnight and walk through a neighborhood alone or leave your kids with a “Carnie” that’s just not smart. If you take the very basic of precautions, you’ll seriously be fine.
Others don’t come because the fair is pricey. I get it. It is real pricey. BUT BUT BUT tomorrow you get FREE entrance to the fair, for the low low price of bringing in 4 canned food items. Who doesn’t have 4 canned food items lying around? If finances are an issue, tomorrow is your day!
My roommates and I decided to take a roommate date at the fair. My schedule happens to be INSANE this next week and last, so this was my ONLY opportunity to go to the fair. Here’s what I did with my hour at the fair.
Tacos with Roomies
Corn on the Cob
Laughed a lot at these hats! They are everywhere!
Then after all the marathon eating. I was able to watch MUTTON BUSTING! What is Mutton busting you ask? Well, it’s my new favorite sport. You put a 6 year old under 60 pounds on the back of a running sheep and see how long they can hang on. It’s the most entertaining thing I have ever seen in my life. The kids absolutely love it and feel like rodeo champions. It’s the most ridiculous hick activity in the world which makes it absolutely wonderful. It is sooo entertaining. I took video of it. Be checking our facebook out to see it. It’s amazing.
You only have until Sunday to check out the fair. Make sure you get down there and experience it for yourself.
When you do, upload pics of you at the fair to our facebook page! We’d love to see your favorite tasty treats and events!
