Washington County Fair Coming Soon!Who is excited for the 2017 Washington County Fair ? It begins on Tuesday, August 29th and will run through Saturday, September 2nd. I love this time of year! The sights, the sounds, and the smells! Ooohhh the smells . . . the smells mean it is time to eat funnel cakes and cotton candy, kettle corn, and anything you can imagine on a stick! Have you seen the deep fried Twinkies on a stick yet? Yes, it really is a thing and they are fantastic!
If all the delicious food (that only comes around once a year, so naturally you will over indulge) doesn't make your stomach queasy, then make sure to visit the Midway and ride some carnival rides . Talk about taking you back to your teen days, there is nothing like that loud music coming from the Himalaya! It's the greatest fair ride, that go's round and round and the siren blares and the speed cranks up as the music plays louder and louder!
After all that noise you may have to take a trip over to the livestock area where all the 4-H kids have entered their best goat, pig, cows, or chickens! Competitions start around 10:00 am daily. Check the schedule, because it's worth the effort to see all the hard work those kids put into their animal on a daily basis finally pay off.
You know we have a favorite place at the fair, and that is next door to the livestock barns, where the art exhibits are, (bonus: air conditioning), which is open from 8am - 8pm daily through out the fair. I have even seen a few familiar paintings with 1st place blue ribbons.
Hope everyone gets to make it out to the fair this year, but if you don't it's always cool in the studio, here in Springdale. Where we will be creating some art worthy of a blue ribbon. #BeBold, #PaintDrinkHaveFun, #WashingtonCountyFair
