Every year, we make our list of Grange Fair traditions and add on a few new things to experience. Here are my recommendations from last summer:
1. The fair haircut. Do it. The stylists at Forever Reds bring their adorable red car over and the kids love it! I think Sherri and the gang do a marvelous job on cuts. In fact, this week I look particularly purty because Sherri just spruced me up!
2. Spend lots of time at the Equine Arena. Jump on the tram and get out to at least one of the horse competitions. The facility is gorgeous and the drivers/ riders are extremely talented. Get a glimpse of some of America’s top riders.
3. Watch the kid’s talent show on Tuesday, August 27th at 9 a.m. on the Southside Stage. Truly, this is a delight. Some kids sing. Others do flips. At least one twirls a baton. And a few recite hilarious speeches. You’ll smile the whole time.
Of course, there are so many wonderful things to enjoy. We try not to miss the Fair Queen Coronation (7 p.m. on Thursday), or the Jr. Swine Show (8 a.m. on Monday morning). We always spend lots of time looking at the bunnies, goats, and chickens. And, of course, we poke our head in to say hello to the librarian and rummage through the books for a few treasures.
What should we add to our “2013 Grange Fair Gotta-Do” list?
