County fairs are a uniquely American celebration of farm life and agriculture held during the end of the growing season in late summer and early autumn, featuring animals, farm equipment exhibits, produce and craft competitions, and of course, rides and food, food, food!! Sooo ... this week show us the fairs you've enjoyed this summer and in the past. I'll start things off with some shots of the Columbiana County Fair here in Ohio.


Looks exactly like the one in Laporte County, IN and the one in Elkhart County, IN. That is very reassuring for me in that everyone is going to be provided with great entertainment and food along with good, wholesome fun - wherever they may be at a county fair ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ†

I've been looking forward to this challenge, Sue. I'll start with some animal antics. A popular event is watching the Sheep Dog Events - listening to commands, the dogs are to herd the sheep through several gates and eventually into a pen. These sheep had a mind of their own, went their own way and started down the track totally away from the infield.


So cool - and a really great hair-do on this last animal

These shots are from 2015 and seem like yesterday! From Ct.and lots of fun


Beautiful action shots๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ, but IMHO, looking at the intense strain that those poor oxen are enduring, their part of the competition sure seems cruel and inhumane ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I got to experience the truck pull competition at this year's Columbiana County fair - totally cool with noise and black smoke spewing from the trucks! The last shot is of the afternoon sun shining through all the exhaust and dust pollution - the EPA would NOT be amused!


Outstanding shooting ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’—

Alaska doesn't have counties. It has boroughs instead. So the best I can do is provide a few photos from a state fair held in the Matanuska Valley an hour's drive east of Anchorage in the mid-'90s. Here they are:

Chuck and I attended two fairs this summer and one last year and noticed how "nice" all the teens were - no weirdness, rude behavior or profanity - just kids enjoying the day!

Nice start Sue, like #3. Thanks for hosting. I've haven't been to a fair for 30+ years! Do miss some of the fun rides!
