Bethlehem Fair

Last Sunday was a gorgeous day for a fair.  We didn't think it would be busy, as it was Sunday and we were heading there kinda late. 

WRONG!!!  It had rained, a nasty thunderstorm with tornado warnings on Saturday...it took us over 30 minutes just to get to the field for parking....
We ate some things and saw some animals, walked around a bit and left after about an hour or so...we don't do rides....well I enjoy rides, but the Hubs, not so much....



 We saw lots of chickens....the Hubs likes chickens....raised them....




Look...a Halloween chicken!  The last one is the Hubs favorite - Barred Rock...(I think)

There were some goats and a couple llamas...but very cool..there were baby Jacob Sheep!  The Jacob is my favorite sheep!  And the only one I can identify on sight (well who couldn't?)

Twins!

So that was about it.....Goodies??  yes, we bought goodies....
Three skeins of local Corriedale..think it'll be a hat....some local soap (the Hubs is a soap aficionado) There was a book seller, so got this at 50% off....and of course, my favorite beef jerky from Nodine's.  The Hubs also purchased kettle corn....
Our shadows, on the way back to the car.....

  1. I haven't been to a good fair in awhile...well, a year, really. Last year's Wisconsin Sheep & Wool festival in Jefferson, WI. This year, I missed it because we moved :(

    Maybe again someday...it's quite grand :)

  2. SO glad you got kettle corn! At the fair I always search out the best sausage sandwich with lots of peppers and onions (so I can remember it a looooong time!!) and some kettle corn or the hubby's choice, taffy! Oh, and he very much likes maple cream if there is a booth somewhere set up from a maple place. Fairs are so fun!
