I don’t think I really have to be the one to tell you this but just in case, state fairs can get pretty messy and this is especially true by the end of the weekend. When I worked for Springfest, the end of the weekend was depressing to me because of more than just my love of state fairs. The clean up was always a mess and would take hours and hours of non stop cleaning and packing everything up.
There was really no time to waste either because every fair is on a strict time schedule and have to be packed and completely cleared, usually in under a day.
I Had it Good
Luckily for me, I never worked directly with any of the animals or agriculture and I really don’t have much room to be complaining compared to those who did. Plus being the lady that I am, most of the heavy duty lifting and clearing was left up to the men which is another reason I really shouldn’t be complaining 🙂
Even though I was working, it made me sad to see everything being packed away for the year and knowing that the season was coming to a close. But hey, at least I didn’t have to be a part of a World’s Fair clean up 🙂
