I don’t know about you guys, but we LOVE the fair at our house. I’m pretty sure my husband was a carnie in a past life and he’s passed that on to his girls! But in all honesty, we all love the atmosphere that comes with the Indiana State Fair!
We look forward to it’s (typical) three week stint at The Fairgrounds! Growing up in ice skating, both my husband and myself were at the fairgrounds many times over the years for competitions and games. When we moved down here, it quickly became a tradition for us to do together (to start) and now as a family!
So we headed out this weekend for what will likely be the first of probably two or three trips to the fair! It was 90+ degrees… SO HOT… But when is a fair in August not hot?!?! We dealt with it…
First stop was The Circus! Step Right Up is the theme of the fair this year and this circus doesn’t disappoint! While there’s no more animals in the cirus, there are truly some really cool acts out there! This show includes a juggler, a clown-ish act, a daredevil-ish act, an acrobatic strength act, a motorcycle act and a horse riding act! It’s a jam packed hour of fun! A must see while there! M U S T!!!
The girls really loved it! And I got to see a sneak preview the week before where I got to pose for a few photos and see one of the acts up close!
Then of course we headed to the midway… We can’t walk by without playing a few games and riding the rides! As terrifying as most of them are, I even rode a few with Ells!
And the food… who can head to the fair without gaining a few lbs?! We had steak sandwiches, a Dilly Dilly (pickle, hotdog, corndog thing), strawberry milkshakes and ice cream, popcorn, lemon shakeups, cotton candy, and more!!!
So… when are you going?
