That Time Again

It’s fair season. Today marks the beginning of the Reading Fair. It runs now through Saturday and there’s plenty to see and do all for the low, low price of $10.00. That gets you parking, admission, rides and entertainment for the entire day.

There are exhibits with ribbons awarded including crafts, vegetables, baked goods, livestock and line dancing, shows from musical to lions and tigers, a variety of dirt track races from go-karts to monster trucks and all the junk food you can imagine.

When I was a kid, this even was held at the original Reading Fairgrounds, now paved over and the site of the Fairgrounds Mall. Then, for a few years it was held in the mall parking lot with various exhibits scattered throughout the mall. Yeah, did that seem just wrong. Now, it’s moved just outside of town to a very pretty area, the kind of place you think fairs should be held.

I haven’t decided if I’m going or not. That’ll be determined by how hot and muggy it is this week. But if it’s a nice day and you’re in the area let me know. I’ll be happy to join you.

I love the fair:) Love the food and the rides:)

So $10 gets you all the rides too? You don't have to pay extra? How cool!

But if you DO have to pay extra, what a rip-off...
