Our family has been attending the fair for about a decade. It didn’t take long for us to discover the Life and Arts department. Lydia in particular loves creating items to be judged in the fair each summer.
This summer there were much fewer entries than normal due to Covid-19, but we still entered several items and continued some annual traditions.
When we first arrived we definitely noticed the crowds were down, however this could also be because it was an unseasonably cool and wet July evening.
Next we went into the E-plex to look for ribbons on our items. We were not disappointed.
And, I got three different ribbons on an antique item I brought in. My grandma had a box of old Sunday School cards published by the Southern Baptist Convention. Most were from the 20s and 30s, but the oldest dates back to 1896.
Of course we also visited a few animals.
We decided not to spend any time on the midway.
We also had a few treats: Pineapple Whip and Tater Tornado.
