We went to the fair last week and had a great time. We just stay on the ground and watch the rides, view the prize winning exhibits and visit the animals. They had been showing the pig races on the local news station nd we made sure we got to see that. It was difficult to photograph the races as the kids were so excited that they kept jumping up in front of me or waving their hands. I have included the video from the fair from YouTube so you can get a taste of the pig/duck/goat races.
My favorite is always the animals. I love the Brahmans - so huge, quiet and expressive. They are actually very adaptable to different climates , intelligent, inquisitive and actually shy.
This year they set up a "Mooturnity" ward for the cows who were about to have calves. Many were born during the fair and it was great for the kids and adults to see.
