Four Favorite Years by Sara
1989 ... NKOTB at the Grandstand
I was only 12. My mom took my best friend and I to see the New Kids on the Block at the Grandstand. Tiffany & Tommy Page were the opening acts. I'll never forget the experience... My first *rock* concert.
199-something... The Teen Years
Every summer my church's youth-group went to the fair. We had "adult" chaperones & we were all grouped with 3 or 4 friends and an adult... My b/f/f and I always spent the time ditching our chaperone & looking for cute boys (that we would never EVER dare talk to.). Amazingly - the chaperone always found us.
2002 - Weight Watchers and the Fair
The ultimate oxymoron? My hubby & I were determined to enjoy the fair while being faithful to our Weight-loss program. We printed out a list of fair-foods and their approximate W.W. points-value (do NOT ask about the cheese-curds). Nothing like sharing one Strawberry Malt at the Dairy Barn! We did it! Stayed in points (& continued to loose almost 200 pounds together that year)
2006 - Doctor's Permission
I was 8 1/2 months pregnant during the 2006 fair. My husband and mother would not allow me to go without the permission of my doctor. Doc gave me the green light and said "Watch what you eat & take it slow... rest often".
Not your average list by chenney
Honey icecream with sunflower seeds covered in honey. Ag building, bee section.
Corn on the Cob
Corn...on the cob, dipped in butter, covered in salt. Not much more to say. Across from the grandstand.
Hot wonderful crepe filled with chocolately hazelnut goodness. I can never remember exactly where the stand is.
Fried Green Tomatoes
Green tomatoes, fried and topped with ranch dressing (of course). Outside the food building.
The 4 things I like best by nineinches4him
Pork Chop on a stick, Gyro sandwich, Cheese curds, and we always finish with a bucket of Sweet Martha's and the all you can drink milk!
At the pet center I love to watch the K-9 demonstrations. Then I go around to all the dog booths and pet the different breeds.
I love seeing all the different shapes n sizes AND checking out hot young dudes.
