A fair day, for sure! Saturday, 8/8/15
After our usual Saturday morning trip to Nevada City's farmer's market, Jimmy and I drove the few miles to the county fairgrounds in Grass Valley. We're very fortunate in that this beautiful tree-covered fairgrounds stays open daily for walkers, bikers and joggers ... and the terrain is flat and the paths are paved. Jimmy is making mighty progress on his walking, including some hills, but level is good. We could see lots of goings-on when we pulled into the parking lot -- they're setting up for the county fair, Aug 12-16 -- oh boy! We bought two tickets at the "advance tickets window," so we'll be going! Meantime, I whipped out my cell phone and took a few pictures.
Filling the bottom trays with sawdust for the chickens. Bunnies go on the other side.
Livestock exhibits are some of the best parts of the fair. It's fun seeing the 4-H kids present their finest.
Live entertainment, delicious food (their word, not mine), animals, and exhibits, all in a community-friendly environment at affordable family prices! The walkways won't look like this when we return -- they'll be filled with folks having fun. We'll join them!
