The State Fair is Here!

The State Fair is Here!

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee/@GeeGranny on Twitter





Laughter, giggling … squeals of delight

Carnival sounds … hit the balloon with the dart!

Rides going round and round … music blaring

Nip in the air making all foods cooking smell good

Give me a sausage dog with onions, peppers please!

It’s here again … the State Fair is here again

Exhibits, cars doing tricks, animals too

Colorful lights … big shows, bands playing, dancing

Thousands of smiling faces, hearts full of joy

The State Fair is here!  The State Fair is here!

I think I’ll have a funnel cake too

Corn on the Cob, big Turkey Legs, Fried Pickles

Children being measured for rides

To keep them safe from falling off

Ice Cream cones dripping down their arms

Pigs racing … the biggest alligator … shortest woman

Homemade fudge … pies, cakes too!

Cooking contests … judges getting to taste all

The State Fair is here!  The State Fair is here!

Thousands of people going to have some fun

Get their favorite foods they craved all year!



Note by this Author:

The State Fair is here … I wish I could be there.  I’ve had an accident that fractured my knee cap that may prevent me from going.

I was looking forward … excited waiting for this time of year to do Fall things.  Sometimes … life gives us a twist, a turn … we go in a different direction.  For now, I take one thing at a time.

  1. Patience hun – we are merely human and there’s always next year!!! 🙂

    We have a fair that visits every year, but it became too dangerous to visit because of the high levels of violence!!! 😦

    A decade of kids growing up without rules makes for incredible levels of violent crime these days, but the Politically Correct Brigade wanted no punishment for children, so they grew up without respect for anyone – and now adults are being attacked and murdered as a result… 😦

    Love and hugs!
