State FairPosted: September 30, 2011
The State Fair of Virginia opened this week.
I scored my family advance “season” passes for just $11 each. It’s normally over $11 just to get in for one day. We have been planning to go this weekend [here’s hoping I feel up to it!].
Funnel cake is out for me, but I am hoping to be able to get some cotton candy and maybe a bit of some ridiculous fried food (thinking maybe Oreo). I’ll probably mainly pack my own snacks though.
I am excited to see adorable baby animals. They have an Australian animal show this year, and there’s the always-popular pig races. I also like seeing all the long-haired rabbits and other cuties up for prizes.
It seems like they will have a farmers market and a lot of vendors, so hopefully I can pick up something yummy. The rides freak me out a little bit (they seem unsafe), but maybe I will get one a few. I’m sure my brother will want to do rides and games, where I will want to eat, shop and look at animals.
