Things We Did Not Do at the California State Fair

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

One of my reasons to visit the California State Fair this year was to see the Tiny Houses, but that exhibit was last week. Now it is gone. Well, there are always national musical acts, right? Except none I want to see, well, maybe UB 40, and they were not performing yesterday. No carnival acts, either. No Lobster Boy. No Bearded Lady. My husband develops motion sickness on rides. No roller coasters.

But there are plenty of other things to do at the California State Fair, starting with food and beverage. Plus, what better State Fair food than something on a stick? You can read more in my personal blog today and see a lot more photos at this link: Fun Photos From the California State Fair 2018.

We walked down to where the horses were so we could check them out. Then my husband looked at the odds, and said what are the odds that the horse in second place would win, place or show. They were good so he bet on that horse.

I, on the other hand, would say who is likely not to win, and then I would bet on that horse, knowing that even if I lost my $6.00, it was a chance to win big, LOL. And I would count the loss of the $6.00 as my enertainment value.

I didn't do the State Fair this year, Elizabeth.  But, I would have liked seeing the Tiny House exhibit.  I've had an interest in that movement since first hearing of it over a decade ago.

Myrl Jeffcoat A few years ago there was a Tiny House exhibit in Elk Grove, and it was raining, miserable weather. We opted for lunch at the Sacramento Co-Op instead. And while at the counter eating, friends came in who had been to the Tiny House exhibit, and I instantly regretted not going out in the rain.

Hi Elizabeth- you love to have fun, and that's a wonderful thing!  I love carousels and cotton candy (I know...too much sugar!) When we were living in Northern VA we would try to go to as many of the small town festivals as we could!
