Tuesday, August 2, 2016:   Opening day of the Crow Wing County Fair in Brainerd, Minnesota. 
Volunteers from the Brainerd American legion, the Brainerd VFW, and the Crow Wing Chapter 22 of the Disabled American Veterans were there to coordinate parking.
Plenty of animals to see at the fair including this friendly Alpaca.
Horses and cows are always a big draw at the fair.
Yes, farming is still viable in Crow Wing County.
Then it happened, food started to show up. 
Yes, food of all kinds was being prepared.  Mark's favorite is a turkey drumstick.
Then stopping at the Honey booth for ice cream with honey was a must before heading out to see the clowns.
Music ran almost full time at the fair.  Just right to get up and dance to.
And then there was a choice of funnel cake with cheries or a chocolate malt.  Paula chose the latter.
Sunset that evening was spectacular.

Quote of the day:    A fitting end to a good day.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
