Today’s post is primarily people. A few animals. Or people and animals. The food highlights will be a separate post. Stay tuned for a Deep Fried Buckeye. No, I didn’t eat it but someone let me photograph theirs.
I accompanied two moms and seven children! We had a wonderful afternoon. Perfect summer day. Last year our visit to the fair was cut short by a severe thunderstorm. If you are new to the blog you can check it out here
Fans from the egg farmers- outside the Taste of Oho Pavillion- four of them are my grandchildren. Three are their friends.
Thanks for letting me photograph your shirt in the Taste of Ohio Pavillion

Weaving a scarf
Rousing band music
Checking the bags of wool

Your photos made me feel like I just attended the Ohio State Fair. Thank you for the experience.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks Francine. As you know there is always so much more. Thanks for coming along with me.
I love fairs. In past years I could get someone to go with me. Now a days no one will go. I enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for bringing back memories.
My mother showed her heifer at the Ohio State Fair (long time ago) and won a prize. It has a long tradition. Thanks for sharing
State Fairs are so fun. Thanks for poting these.
And thanks for checking out the fair on the blog today, Jamie.
For half a second I thought the men’s image at the Cardinal booth was a mirror – I was very surprised when I realized it was two men who just happened to look a LOT alike! Great captures. I’m interested to see the food later on….
Thanks Stef. Here is the food post today. Not sure what you would try but it is pretty interesting to me. I didn’t eat it, though. Just marvel at those who do.
This looks like a great fair to visit – so many interesting things to see and do. I enjoyed looking at your photographs.
There is a lot to see. Just people watching is a great activity.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Thanks for sharing – it brought back of happy memories of the County Fair here in South Park. I loved to go when I was a little girls.
My first thought as I glanced at your 1st photo- ” Look @ those colorful shoes- each a different shade and color. ” It could be the basis of a back to school advertisement.
Absolutely stunning shots Ruth! Looked like it was very enjoyable. I should have had the “fowl mood” T-shirt today to wear. 😆
Hugs to you and thanks for the positive words.
You’re very welcome hon and thanks for the *hugs* 😀
Truly cow country Ruth. Glad you are having fun :
You are so right CJ. Moooooo.
Loving summer vacation
what a day! The information and red shirted men was my favourite today – a great capture!
Great shots Ruth, you can definitely feel the fun, and some hard work, in every one! Would love to visit a State Fair one day!
Thanks Patti. So much to see and take in. The hard work caring for the animals is evident. I can’t imagine.
I see President Lincoln is still alive!
The person sleeping behind that fan – I’d be afraid that would fall on me.
Thanks for taking us along 🙂
Love the disclaimer that accompanied Jack’s pic. I doubt anyone who’s read your blog would think that any of you would ever do something like that to one of the kids. Too cute!
