I remember looking forward to the state fair all summer when I was little. The week of the state fair was always a little bittersweet, though, as it marked the beginning of a new school year and the end of summer vacation.
I remember riding on the tilt-a-whirl with my mom, going down the big slide with my brothers, watching the talent shows with my grandparents, eating mini doughnuts and pronto pups and drinking all the milk I could for a quarter. Now I’m making new memories with my own little family.
As I was looking through some of the pictures I took this past summer, I came across a few from this year at the fair.

Did you go to the fair this year? What were your favorite things about the fair? What did you eat?
