  2. My Linky isn't sticking! I keep putting it in and it goes away. I used to live in GA a long long long time ago. GA State Fair was a lot of fun. Also love the sunset photo - really gorgeous!
    Here is mine.

  15. I love the State Fair! I went to a Georgia one once on my way to Orlando. I have also been to a fair in Valdosta, but I don't remember which one... although I think it was named after a flower. Great post!

  16. HI Susan,
    Oh this makes me yearn for a day at the fair. Ours isn't until September, right after school starts. I love spending the day looking at EVERY SINGLE THING!!! And of course eating some really good (bad for you) food.
    Your fair must be early because it gets so hot where you are. I'd love a warm evening riding the ferris wheel. That sounds like heaven. Also, embarassing but true, one of my favorite movies of all times is "State Fair", I watch it every year at least twice.(and my girls and I know all the songs!!)...It's a grand night for singing....
    Thanks for sharing these picutures - the sunset one is esp. pretty!

  17. Thanks for hosting! I'm gonna have to check out the fair next year since we are not that far away...it looked like fun.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, you got some great shots, Susan! I love how colorful the sky is in that last one. I used to love to go to the State Fair as a child. This just tempts me to go as an adult. I think I need a pronto pup! ;-)

    Hope to post with you in the not too distant future for Outdoor Wed. I have some night shots of St. Augustine that Fred took that are awesome. He took them with his cell phone.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  61. The only reason I go to our state fair is for the free homemade biscuits and to see the arts and crafts exhibits- I am too scared to ride anything!Wonder how long it will be before a state fair is a thing of the past?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Susan, I love your blog. It uplifts my day and your Outdoor Wednesdays are fabulous. I love the outdoors! My first Outdoor Wednesday participation. I so enjoyed hearing about Georgia's State Fair.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the fair! Ours is in October here in SC. I would have thought Georgia's State fair would have been closer to our time frame too! It's always fun to go and see all the pretty cakes and lovely artwork, and eat! I don't do the rides anymore!

    ReplyDelete
