Fun and Color at the County Fair

Santa Maria Fair

15-JUL-2009

I've attended each year for at least a decade. Some things change and some things stay the same, but it's always fun. The photo competition pretty much fills the perimeter of the exhibit hall, and it's always a good show. I received six ribbons this year. Below are photos of the fair, which I made during the opening day.

Most kids are great companions and know how to share fun at the fair.
