At 10:00 AM, the gates open and the expected over 100,000 visitors start coming in. They eat, they catch up with old friends and take in the sights. Some are here to stock up on free office supplies and candy and hit every booth that has something to give away.
We have Monster ears, OOfda Tacos, Honey sundaes, and Shooster burgers, pony rides and a Carnival, and entries of anything and everything. There is an educational building for the K-12 entrants and Fine Arts covering all ages , with a special division for nursing home residents.
Tuesday was Senior Day and the buses from all the area nursing and group homes brought in their residents. They got corsages, special fair treats and a tour. This is the first year that my family has not brought a Senior to the fair as only my Mother-in-law is left and she can go on her own. We had a Tractor Parade this morning and have three performances of the Irish Dancers. They have really fast feet!!
I had an on the spot interview with one of our local Radio stations - HGTV here I come. The reporter was intrigued with the idea of Home Staging and said after the interview that it sounded like something everyone should do before selling. He "got it". One down and xxxx.... to go.
