Another trip to the Ohio State Fair – my theme for this year is the Faces of the Fair.
Human – Animal – otherwise.
First up – the Bee Growers tent representative.
A completely sheered sheep (except the nose and ears, not sure why that was left that way)
Hanging out for a week or two at the fair must be boring for this little guy.
The sheep show contestants were very dressed up.
While the queen had seen enough.
A prize winner.
I like his horns.
The white sheep of the family.
There are a number of stages for performers.
The butter sculptures are always a big hit. The theme this year is the movie the Christmas Story. While it was set in Indiana, it was partially filmed at a house in Cleveland which to this day maintains a steady tourist trade.
They added to the scene with a calf sticking it’s tongue to the cold pole as well.
Ralphie and his rabbit outfit, along with the Leg Lamp.
A newborn calf.
Another newborn calf with a great drool going.
The poultry barn offered a number of great faces.
The Marvelous Mutts Dog Show.
The dogs are aces at Frisbee catching.
Back in the poultry house.
A giant animatronics Smokey the Bear.
The Ohio Nut Growers Association had a collection of nutcrackers.
The clown band always draws bemused looks.
A guy did a ‘comedy routing/magic act’ show – this young man thought he was opening a box with a live snake, only to have the old ‘rubber snake coming out of the box’ trick pulled on him.
The magic act continues.
In the Arts and Crafts section – an award winning cake.
More faces in the crowd.
Finally it was time to head home.
See you next year.
