Fairs are a melody of distinctive sounds, animals vocalizing their wants and needs and public announcement systems blaring the next upcoming scheduled event or activity. Then there is the unmistakable smell, a combination of animal excretement and cooking food. And color; there is a wide variety of colors, from animal breeds, to tractors and carnival amusement. Yes my friends’ county fairs bombard all of your senses!
Animals are brought to the fair to be judged for the best in breed and the best in show. Vegetables, jellies, jams, pies and cakes are also brought to the fair for judging in hopes of bringing home a first place blue ribbon.
