I went to the fair as a child. Everything was huge and bizarre and energizing. I remember dirty feet, sugary treats, staying up late and winning a goldfish that lived for years. I remember the autonomy I felt, skipping off to a ride with friends and having my own money to spend.

People hanging out and talking about their craft, petting their pigs and goats, showcasing their best vegetables. Man, I love the fair.
