I have many fond memories of going to the County Fair.  I met my best friend at the fair when I was 6.  Then every year our parents would drop us off early in the morning and we would spend the whole day there.  From the fun house, seeing a lady cut in half or even the bearded lady, we had such fun.  Then there was the food!  Such that you only got once a year when the fair was in town.

They offer a fun and wholesome atmosphere with rides, food, games and attractions for everyone. )Take your kids and try visiting one.  

If you live in Texas here is one to try.

There is a quilt museum in La Grange also. Plenty of gems to be found when in these small towns for the fair.

I think this is the only place in the USA where my last name is pronounced correctly.  It's where my family is from. I never lived there but we visited family while growing up. One of the exciting things back then was putting pennies on the railroad tracks and collecting the flattened remains later.  Thanks for the memory.
 
It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
