Saturday was actually kind of a hard day as a hospital advocate so when Kyle brought home Ohio State Fair tickets, I was relieved to spend the evening out and about. It was closing weekend for the fair so it was pretty crowded but we enjoyed ourselves. One of my biggest passions/interests is in American popular entertainments and I especially love carnivals and sideshows so, naturally, I had to take pictures of the all classic midway spots.
Fair food is scrumptious which is a good thing since it’s also deep fried and overpriced. We saw the sign for the smorgasbord and all I could think of was this.
And as crowded as the fairgrounds were, up at the top of the Ferris wheel, the world felt very small and far away.
Speaking of which, did you know the first official Ferris wheel was constructed in 1893 in Chicago? Now you do.
I love that you can see the Columbus skyline behind Kyle in this picture.
We didn’t get a chance to see everything but we did spend some time in the sheep barn and met this fuzzy guy. I wanted to give him a hug but I’m not sure he felt the same.
Have you visited your state fair recently? What’s your favorite thing to do at the fair?
