Fried Fare and Fun

We went to the fair – twice. Man, I wait all year for that food, and this year did not disappoint. (But I would suggest don’t do it two days in a row…)
the Midway!

The midway was lined with all kinds of greasy yummy goodness and carnies yelling at you to come play their rigged games.

There was a large array of fried choices this year: fried mushrooms, fried chicken on a stick, fried pickles, fried corn, fried Snickers, fried Twinkies, fried Oreos, fried butter, fried green beans, fried cheese, fried cheesecake…just to name a few.

We actually ate the fried mushrooms, chicken on a stick, fried cheese, and fried Oreos – which, believe it or not, are amazing!

 
Pulling taffy

There are other things available that aren’t fried, and they’re pretty good too.

 
The taffy is a must, if your teeth can handle it. I just like watching the machine pull it all day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And no fair would be complete without racing farm animals
pig races

and daredevils

Oh, and there were rides too, but we were too busy stuffing our faces to have time for those. If you’re in the Jackson area, and haven’t been yet, it’s time to get out there and indulge your country side.
