Missouri State Fair

Our  happy feet’s destination this weekend was Sedalia, Missouri – venue of the annual Missouri State Fair. I’ve never been to a State Fair so I didn’t know what to expect.  Tashi shared a few information but whenever I have a question his response was always ‘you’ll see’ so I turned to the Fair’s History Summary page of their website to get a glimpse of what it’s all about.

It’s a huge Carnival! I love carnivals and country lifestyle so I knew I would like the experience despite the heat.

The Fair offered rides and attractions mostly suited for kids. There are also hundreds of local vendors to choose and buy from. I bought some handcrafted soaps from Jasper Lee Soap Works. I love their citronella-based Bugs Off bar soap.

Ferris Wheel

Pirate Ride

Horror Ride
We tried this horror ride. It was hot inside! Also not recommended for anyone who’s claustrophobic.

White Water Ride
This ride was awesome. It reminded me of (Philippines) Enchanted Kingdom‘s Log Jam ride, one of my favorite rides.
Concert
This band entertained us with country blues songs while we eat lunch.

It was a fun-filled day for me and Tashi.  Although our happy feet had become achy feet after hours of walking and exploring it was still a great experience. I told Tashi, when we go back next year I will be wearing my cowboy boots.

Yeehaw!

“Country things are the necessary root of our life – and that remains true even of a rootless and tragically urban civilization. To live permanently away from the country is a form of slow death.”  ― Esther Meynell
