NY State Fair!

8 Sep

John and I took S to his first NY State Fair on Monday. It was John’s first NYS Fair too, and we almost didn’t go! John didn’t want to go on Thursday, and we didn’t feel like driving over the weekend, but we were finally game on Labor Day, which was the last day of the fair.

We got there kind of late, so I wanted to make sure that we did my “musts”: Sand sculpture, butter sculpture, 25 cent milk, animals, and fair food! (I had a fried haddock sandwich and a funnel cake. John had a grilled chicken sandwich and strawberry ice cream with strawberries on top. I got a little bite of fudge too, which we shared. Yummy!)

We were able to do all of it except see the animals because they were gone by the time we got there. 😦 I was pretty dissapointed; I wanted cute pictures of S with the animals! S did look like he enjoyed himself though. I carried him in his Moby, which was awesome because it made it a lot easier to maneuver around the crowd. After we ate, he just poked his head out and looked around. It was pretty cute.

All in all, it was a good time, and it didn’t rain or anything. (Well, a couple droplets fell, but it didn’t rain.) We stopped for a while to watch this funny German comedian/juggler guy do things like juggle fire and balance a chainsaw on his chin and then we headed home. Good quick trip to the fair!

      You can buy a cup of milk for a quarter.

    Glad you had fun! Don’t you love the Center of Progress building? So many kinds of fudge. The milk is still 25 cents – amazing that stayed at that rate. From free to 25 cents in all these years is still great! Did you see the vendor giving out baked potatoes? Or did they stop doing that for free too? It used to be close to the milk vendor 🙂

      No, we didn’t see a baked potato vendor. I totally would have gotten one if we’d seen it!
