Fun at the Fair

Took my family to the Schaghticoke Fair today. We always enjoy a day at the fair; ice cream, cider donuts, Philly cheesesteaks, fried dough, midway games and rides, animal shows, etc.
Highlights of the day included my niece, Stacy, partipating in the annual horse shows. She's been doing this since she was old enough to climb onto a horse. Now, at the age of 24, she's an old pro at it.
The demolition derby caught our attention, with three shows back to back. The sight, sound and smell of dozens of crashing cars, burning rubber and thousands of screaming fans was indeed a thrill to experience. My wife got her annual fix of fudge. The weather was spectacular and, once again, we bumped into quite a few people we haven't seen in awhile.
All said and done, we had a "fair" day...pun intended
