Going to the Fair

I’m not sure how this has occurred, but I’ve lived in Ohio 20+ years and have never been to any kind of fair, County or State. The closest I’ve come are Stagecoach Days (New Lebanon, Ohio). Believe it or not, I grew up in a village that was one of the historical stage coach stops during the westward expansion. I know, its kind of cool.

This all changes tomorrow, I’m going to the Ohio State Fair! For some time now I’ve heard of the Fine Arts Competition at the fair, but this is my first opportunity to go and check it out. I like both the vision and the mission of the competition and am so eager to see what artwork is included and how the artists are represented.

Also on the agenda: 25-ton sand sculptures, chainsaw carving and sculpting with chocolate.
