Our World - Afternoon at the Fair


We try to get to The Great Frederick Fair each year since retirement. The fair has an abundance of displays of farm goods, food, crafts, sewing and photography. We started with lunch - Hemp's Meats serves up great barbeque beef. Then checked out some of the indoor exhibits wandered through the midway area and large animal barns.  

 Rides and games for young and old

Lots of farm animals: sheep,

horses (this colt needs a name),


geese;
 
big farm equipment;
 
 and other items for sale.

For more of the fair come by Wednesday for the Header Challenge.
