All the animals are at the fair and today it is the sheep/goat show. Our helper Collin will be showing...Rabbits and chicken show. Plus there are free shows all day long. At Pleasant Hill where I am at, at the Gazebo there will be live music. The big attraction will be the homemade ice cream. Commercial building and cultural building as well as the area around them are full.
How can I say this with out bragging, but we are a Blue Ribbon Iowa Fair. The manager came from the Iowa State Fair 2 years ago, and he told the fair board member we are like a little mini State Fair. We have all that the State Fair has but in of course a smaller display as the Iowa State FAIR....that says it all.
We will take lots of pictures today, even though it is going to be a wet, rainy day. I will get up early tomorrow and post them.
I am going to share with you one thing I did yesterday we had a fairy garden workshop. IT was so much fun. For the kids during the times Thursday at one, go to the General Store and the Fair will give you the container and the dirt to plant in. Then you will come over to our booth and we will help you design a miniature garden ( fairy garden) whatever you want and we have very reasonable priced items to do it with. You will have to pay for what you want to use, with the miniatures and with the plants...
If you come please stop in to the booth and let me know you read this blog. I have had 4400 hits since I wrote the first day about what I do to get ready for the fair. I like to know who you are...if you are out of the area please share and comment then I know about all that are reading. More today....till next time this is Becky Litterer, Becky's Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa firstname.lastname@example.org
