This morning I went to the State Fair. Going early on Sunday morning is a good time - it is still cool and there are not many people around. I have been to the fair so often I knew exactly the few things I wanted to see.
This double Ferris wheel probably had a busy night last night. It looks much grander at night with all its lights.
In the morning light it looks much different. It was always my favorite ride. And it seemed SO BIG when I was a child.
Now days I like the flower garden by the Agricultural Building. This year I noticed a lot of brightly colored chairs as well as other things decorating the garden.
Here's another set. Not sure I like the pink but ...
This monarch butterfly was happy. There were several in this area.
Inside the Ag Building you could see the results of a recent flower show.
A ribbon like this is pretty special.
I liked the window in the background of this image.
Every year the Iowa State Fair features a life size cow made out of butter. This year along with the cow the sculptor did a tribute to Green Eggs and Ham.
Here's a children's play area that looks like a train.
Before the heat got too intense, I was on my way back home. The crowd was already starting to get heavy and it was only 10:00.
I was home by 11:00. The fair is nice but I had seen all I wanted to see before it got hot.
Thanks for stopping by.
