The Great Frederick Fair

Monday, September 24, 2012

The Great Frederick Fair is one of my favorite events in Frederick.  Full of food, fun and cute animals.  Wade and I go every year for a day date.  We headed to the fair the first Saturday it was open and it was the most beautiful day ever!

We headed to the dairy and beef cattle houses first.  I have a soft spot for cows. I think it is because they remind me of dogs. 🙂

Next we headed to the produce barn to look at all the jumbo fruits and veggies.

Next we headed to the poultry and rabbit building.  I used to have bunnies.  They are the best. I always feel bad for the rabbits, why do they put them in with the loudest animals known to man, chickens.  Their poor little ears!

Next off to the goat building.  The goats were very interactive with us.

{Love your colors little one}
{Look how the brown one in the back is laying his head on the other.. so cute}

Next was the pig building.  Probably one of the most glorious buildings of all.  I would come to the fair to see the little piglets alone!

{Giant Hogs}

And then…. sheep! All of the workers were sheering, washing and dressing the sheep to be show.  The little coats they put on them this year were so colorful.  I like.

Before heading to Hemp’s meats to get dinner we stopped in at the Discovery Tent. As well as walked around to the commercial buildings to grab some free highlights and coozies.  I love free stuff.

I was super happy when there wasn’t a line at Hemps.  Wade and I ordered the Ham+Pit Beef Sandwiches, Coleslae and Fries.  It was so so good.

We walked around the carnival area, and decided not to waste money and ride rides.  Maybe next year. What a lovely day date 🙂
