The Cobble Hill Fair was on this weekend! This event is a real old fashioned "fall fair" for the whole family and it has been happening for 101 years…my daughters use to LOVE going when they were young as there were lots of animals, a petting zoo and of course lots of food. And…if the memory serves me…lots of stories about butting goats!!
You won't find any carnival rides here - there's not a rocket-ship, tilt-a-whirl or roller-coaster to be found. Nor are there any of the side-shows and electronic games blasting out heavy metal ear-busting music.
The miniature horses are always a big draw for little kids~
The only rides at this fair were a manually pushed merry-go-round for kids, (I’m sure it’s the same one my daughters rode on 20 odd years ago!!), hay wagon rides, miniature horse rides and kids hopping up and down on antique farm trucks and equipment.
The fair grounds were just full of children of all ages who looked to be having a great time. They were looking at, and in some cases able to pat, the llamas, pigs, rabbits, chickens, cattle, sheep, horses and other animals that are a great part of this exhibition. For some of the older kids, there was a 'hay-bale' tossing contest that was drawing a lot of attention - even a bunch of giggling teen-age girls were giving it a go.
And of course there is the juried fruits and vegetables, baking and preserves.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I can’t believe that August is almost over…and Fall is just around the corner! Is it just me or is time going by way too quickly?
Two days until I get my husband to randomly pull a name out of the hat for the GO! Fabric Cutter! If you haven’t entered yet then GO! here!
Have a super Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
