Throwback, Awaiting August

A state fair staple, funnel cake.

August means the last full month of summer and two full weeks of state fair celebration. Ever since we moved to Missouri, my family and I would attend the state fair each year building a tradition. About a decade ago when my sister graduated from high school (geez, I feel old now) the tradition faded into a rare appearance at the fair.

I’m travelling home for a few weeks next month and would love to fit in a visit to the fair. Besides the must haves of funnel cake, corn dogs, and weird things deep fried, I like visiting the state fair to reminisce the good old days.

Hold_Nothing_Back_by_teafunnyHalfway through spring which means summer will soon be here. Summer is my least favorite season; I am not sure why I dislike it so much. The only good thing about summer is going swimming and visiting the state fair–a yearly tradition.

My first concert was a state fair concert, some country music artist (I lived in Missouri after all). Most of the time I would check out the fair two or three times during the two weeks of the celebration. There wasn’t that much to see but it was something to do.Sugar__Sugar_by_teafunny

The other part of the fair that you always looked forward to was the food. The corn dogs made your mouth water. Sugar highs were common due to the funnel cakes and cotton candy. It was a good time to indulge.

I haven’t been to the fair in awhile. I hope to remedy that by visiting home during the summer when the fair is in full swing.
