2008 State Fair - Part 1

This year I did a first. I visited my first Fair in Sedalia, Missouri. Though I had a great time, it wasn't like the fair Ma and Pa Kettle visited in the movie "Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair (1952)" It had a lot of activities, but seemed very commercial and lacking in animals.

Two days after the Missouri's Fair, I went to the Indianapolis State Fair, which was much more what I expected. I saw the worlds largest boar, acres of farm animals, and all types of cows and sheep. They demonstrated how to milk cows and shear sheep. I even saw a small bee farm!

Here's but a few photo's from the Fairs.
