ONE WEEK FROM FRIDAY

It's almost that time again.  That time in the fall that I've look forward to now for over 50 years.  (Yikes that's along time)  But no really, I love the fair.  And the Puyallup (Pew-all-up) Fair opens on September 8th at 10am and runs thru September 24th.   The fair ranks among the 10 largest fairs in the world, and it's right here practically in my back yard. Actually it's about a 12 mile drive from here but the last four or five years we've taken public transit.  They pick you up at the nearby mall and for a couple dollars you get a round-trip ride, dropping you off at the main gate of the fairgrounds. No parking hassles, no dented fenders, just sit back and let them do the driving. 

I'm not sure when I'll go out there yet.  But I will be there at least once before it ends.  Both my grandkids have entires again this year, so will go for that if nothing else.

Until next time........Linda

I debated only "Doing the Puyallup" because I can only afford one or the other (The Evergreen State Fair).  I finally opted for the Evergreen, since it is cheaper, closer, and sooner!  I have not been to either fair for more than 10 years!  Have fun!  Jae

I love the fair....  but quit going sometime back and let the younger crowd have all the fun.    But it's a very fond memory for me.

sounds like fun!! I think its great to use public transportation; less hassle and it delivers you right to the main gate; can't get any better than that. Do take a picture of your grandkids entries. What did they enter?

Used to love fairs but we have none now, not in this area. I know they are very big in the US.  Hope you have a wonderful time and that your Grandchildren do well.  Perhaps some piccies?
