I have fond memories of going to the Ottawa County Fair as a kid.
I lived in Toledo, but our family was good friends with a family that lived in on a farm outside Elmore, Ohio, so we'd always spend a summer day there with them. The rides, food and animals--and the demolition derby--fun stuff as a kid.
My wife and I now make a point of taking our daughters to the Champaign County Fair each year. They participate with their dojo in a karate demonstration and then we eat, check out the livestock and then make our way to the rides and a fair food snack. Always, the last thing before going home is picking up some cotton candy.
Below are a few pictures from this year.
