Fair time! Yaaaaaaaay!
The skies were threatening and the weather was cool, but living in Upstate sure prepares you for THAT, so I just wore jeans and a rain jacket instead of shorts and a tank top, and I was ready to go.
It was opening day, so the sand sculpture was just getting started:
The butter sculpture always draws a crowd:
Sea lions! I usually feel bad for the animals at carnivals, but these sea lions were all rescued after being injured and could never be released back into the wild, and they seemed happy and playful, so it was fun to watch them.
Rockin' out to Everclear at Chevy Court:
The thing that surprised me most about Everclear, other than the fact that they're still around (ha), is that the lead singer, Art Alexakis, who is known to be pretty much a sour-ass douche, actually seemed to be enjoying himself yesterday. Surprise!
See the gal in the blue shirt on the left, there?:
She was the sign-language interpreter, and while I have to question how many deaf people bother to go to concerts, she was having a good time, rocking along with the band.
Oh my god the QUILTS:
Adirondack Mountain Cloggers:
That lady with the pink shoelaces HAD to be pushing ninety, and she wasn't all that steady on her feet, but she was out there cloggin' it up with the best of them, bless her heart.
This alpaca (llama?) thought I was kind of sketchy:
Oh, Fair, I love you so. See you next year!
