Cumberland County Fair

On Saturday, Clark and I went to the Cumberland County Fair which was only about 10 minutes from our apartment. I had this fair in my schedule to check out ever since I heard about it. And since I am new to town it is always fun to see what the local happenings are. My hometown county fair back in Washington state has a lot more livestock and agriculture then this one did but I still liked it. There was a lot more carnival rides and sales booths. Some of the rides looked a little bit janky but it was all good. I have fun checking out the produce and the quilts. My little brother, who is 11 years old, won grand champion in the fair back in Washington for home grown eggs. Proud sister moment. 
We ate good fair food. Clark got a philly cheesesteak and I got a corn dog and we shared a bucket of fries. I drank lemonade and he drank sweet tea. I really wanted to get ice cream but fair food is rather expensive so we opted to save money and eat the ice cream we had at home. Better choice anyways. We also watched a band sing. They did a lot of cover songs but also sung songs they had written which was nice. Then there was karaoke which Clark said was his favorite part because most of the people picked songs that they didn't know so there was a little off tuneness happening. This was probably one of the best people watching experiences I have had in a while. I love people watching, I guess I take after my mom in the way. 
One of the best parts of the fair was the wild animal exibit. There was a white tiger, cougar, and a regular tiger, a snake, and a parrot. Very cool. That is something I definitely would not have seen at my hometown county fair in Washington. We had fun. It was not very big but that is okay. I think we are planning on going to the North Carolina state fair in Raleigh later this autumn. I am enjoying these days, I can wear pants again.
