The Mid State Fair (San Luis Obispo county) in Paso Robles, California. Great entertainment, good food. It's not as big as the L.A. or Santa Clara County Fairs, it's judt the right size.

What we like about the fairs are the animals.  It's a different experience to see how chickens or rabbits are judged and to see the kids grooming them and all so hopeful of taking home a prize. Old fashioned fun.

I remember going to the SRS of ST Dominic Blauvelt order of NUNS who taught me as a child, I would take the red and tan buses from Port Authority get off @ 496 Western Highway Blauvelt NYC, on their motherhouse grounds, outdoor county fair every year, win money prizes, eat good food there too, they run it every last Saturday of each September each year,  chat  with the srs listen to the music, the proceeds go to their upkeep of the Motherhouse of the grounds, the elderly SRS infirmary, go to mass in their chapel at the end of the festival been doing that for years , now I cannot but i remember all the great times we all had up there, every year in September,

I grew up going to the 4H Fair every summer.  It was so exciting to ride the Tilt-A-Whirl and the Scrambler, screaming and laughing at the same time.  As I got older, I'd go with a boyfriend who would try to win a giant stuffed bear or knock down some bowling pins to win a prize to impress me!   I ended up moving far away from any type of summer fair but still remember them fondly.
