I can’t actually explain why I love the NYS Fair so much. It’s probably related to the love I have a busy cities. The crowds, the stimulation, always something to see and do appeals to me. (I will always regret not living in a major city at some point in my life.)
This year the fair opened at day earlier than it’s usually twelve day run. “Preview Day” is what they called it and with the $1 special admission price we were off to get our own preview of the end of summer event.
Preview Day was an accurate depiction because there were a great deal of vendors and attractions not fully set up or operational. Lots of vacant spaces to be found that I am sure will be filled by tomorrow.
This didn’t deter us at all as we were more than content taking the first day to walk around and get the “lay of the land” so to speak.
You see the sand sculpture taking shape. This particular side will be highlighting Women’s right to Vote in 1920.
I have brought Lucas here every year since he was born.
All Liam wanted to do was check out the animals. He learned that if he yells at the turkeys that they would gobble back at him Literally the funniest thing ever.
Liam spots the train and it was on.
Not trip to the fair is complete without stopping by the Dairy Building and checking out the Butter Sculpture. Don’t forget to grab a cup of fresh milk. Still .25 cents.
Many more visits to follow. If you have never been and are able you should totally check it out. The food, the Midway, the exhibits all have coverage to follow
