Walking the streets
People watching, esp children at their amazment of what they see. I will be taking my 8 yr old granddaughter this year. I used to take my kids as young as 4. Must be able to walk, not carried. I use my camera and take random shots of the gardens, people down the street, displays, etc.
At least 3-4 of those in my diet for the day. PINEAPPLE!!!! I figure a 30 minute walk takes care of each cone.
I love going to the levels of the grandstand outdoors and people watch. You can see for a long way from up there. I get great photos of the whole section of the fair grounds.
It is awesome to see this each year. I come from a rural area and grew up in SD with the animals, but the action of moms and babies is a wonderful sight to share.
