In 2007 I attended the Northwest Montana Fair in Kalispell. This was the fair I grew up going to. That summer was a particularly bad fire season and the sky was a crazy pink and red color in the evenings. I was able to photograph the fair with the wild sky.
Living in Seattle, our local fair is the Puyallup Fair and its held every September. My husband and I started attending together in 2005 and have gone several times over the years.

After walking around, one gets hungry and there is food available of every kind you can think of. I had been hearing about deep fried desserts, like candy bars and Twinkies. So when I saw this Totally Fried Food stand, we waited in line for thirty minutes to try some. I ordered a deep fried Butterfinger but they messed up my order and I got a Babe Ruth instead. To me the flavors didn't mix and it was kind of a fail. The nuts in the chocolate bar didn't match the fried shell on the outside. The creamy peanut butter of a Butterfinger might have been better. Who am I kidding? This wasn't healthy and nobody should be eating this. But when at the fair...

Last year at the Puyallup Fair we shared a waffle cone with a mix of chocolate and vanilla ice cream covered in sprinkles.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at some of my fair photos from over the years. Thanks for reminiscing with me!
