The Big Fantastic

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Bell - Windermere Peninsula Properties

Each year in September, I have the dubious honor of being a  "Booth Boy" in a 17 Day Event known as...

"The Big Fantastic"

The Puyallup Fair

According to Wikipedia:

"The Puyallup Fair is the largest single attraction held annually in the state of Washington. The fair continually ranks in the top ten largest fairs in the United States. [1] Situated in Puyallup, 35 miles (56 km) south of Seattle and 10 miles (16 km) east of Tacoma in the shadow of Mount Rainier, the fairgrounds comprise 160 acres (0.65 km2), with buildings and land valued at more than $54 million.

Until 2006, the fair was officially known as the "Western Washington Fair."

For the past 20 + years the Puyallup Fair has been a big part of our Real Estate Company's Marketing Plan for the promotion of  our Development -LakeLand Village Residential Golf Course Community in Allyn, Washington.

This is the first year that I brought along my lap top. Hooked into a wireless network. And started blogging. Isn't Web 2.0 Cool?


Richard blogging at the Big Fantastic

So for the next several weeks, I will be the "Booth Boy Blogger" an report on what is going on at the Puyallup. Oh, by the way, you kind'a  have to be a local to pronounce Puyallup correctly.

Next blog, I hope to tell you about Al's Brain. It's an exhibit about "The Human Brain" featuring a 3 D movie and hosted by "Weird Al" Yankovic. This I got to see.

See ya Later

Good luck with your booth duty!  Puyallup -- yep, I love many of the names in our region; kinda like a way to know if someone isn't from the local area.  Best of success!  John

Richard: Sorry I missed you there. It could be that we didn't know each other then. We were there on Saturday and had a great time. We always enjoy seeing the mother pigs and their babies and eating that nutritious fair food! Take care.
