About four days after visiting the Common Ground Fair upstate, Mr. Cleaver and I stopped by the Cumberland County Fair on Wednesday.

Country Couple

This was much more similar to the fairs I grew up with. There were rides:

Dragon Boat

Bumper Cars

(I totally loved this girl, her poor car kept getting stuck, which is totally what would happen to me.)

There were games:

 

Almost there

(Neither of us hit the bell)

There were prize-winning livestock:

Blue Ribbon

Holstein Showdown

Jailhouse Blues

Giant vegetables:

Giant Pumpkins

Oxen Pulls:

Ox Pull

and a blacksmith demonstration:

Blacksmith

(The smithy even gave us one of the hook he made)

The weather was again, perfect and I had a fantastic time. Even though I ate too much fried dough, my faith in the county fair is totally restored.

Next up on the fall activity list: apple-picking!
