Now that I am a grown adult, for the most part :), exploring the different food vendors would have to be my favorite part about going to the fair. When I was a kid though, I always looked the most forward to going to see all of the different animals that you could pet and sometimes even ride.
Where Else Can You See A Pig Race?
I sure can’t think of any other places besides a fair.
Well, maybe some sort of rodeo but you know what I mean 🙂
If you have never seen a pig up close, especially a baby, let me be the one to tell you that they are absolutely adorable! The excitement that grows on my kids faces is absolutely hysterical whenever we see the pig pens and start walking over.
Another amazing thing that you can do for your kids is to let them ride and touch whatever they have. I remember one year when working at Springfest, we had actual camels come in and they were letting people take a lap around on the camel. Now these things are way bigger than you might think and even I was excited to ride one.
Something else that I have seen done at fairs but have never been brave enough to watch it happen is a mother cow giving birth. Now I am sure this is a beautiful thing in some peoples’ eyes but that is something I can do without 🙂
