This Week's Pick: The Fair! July 30 - August 3, 2014

I am still a sucker for county fairs, and that's why this week's pick is the Chemung County Fair horse show.

There's just something about little girls in braids on their ponies, with a Ferris wheel in the background, and sleek jumpers casually taking colorful jumps with the clang of the midway as background music.

Sigh.  I haven't worn braids for decades. 

Anyway, go to the fair, and have a great time with your pony!

  1. The Kentucky Derby and the festival both are fantastic fun and, as a lifelong Louisvillian, I welcome you to the event and to our fine city. Beautiful horses i like your post.Just keep in mind that there are some things you should do while here and some things you probably shouldn’t, at least if having fun is your motivation. If you really want fun and feel relax then book a Kentucky Derby Rentals
