I have mixed feelings about exhibition fairs. Ever since I worked as a clown at the Calgary Stampede Kids’ Country tent eons ago, fairs have lost their allure. (I was a terrible clown by the way; “I’m a friendly clown not a magic clown;” they walk away disappointed.) However, my kids and my husband LOVE the fair! My husband forgets words like “budget” and shells out the bucks to try games and have a good time. Not such a terrible quality in a dad I suppose! I do love all the free and educational stuff for kids and we spent the majority of our time this year at K Days taking it in. We went specifically went to see Will Stroet and his Backyard Band perform – look for my review on This Bird’s Day (thanks for having me, Sheri!).
Though some women are apparently quite comfortable going to the fair in platform 4″ wedges and crop tops, I went for functionality!
We were all exhausted but had a great day! Turns out fairs are awesome for creating memorable scenes of summer family fun!
