The past couple years, we have gone first thing on Saturday morning because it is only $2 to get in. We’re kind of cheapskates when it comes to certain things. There is always so much fun festivities going on and the girls have a blast riding a few kiddie rides and getting some lemonade. Our first time there was the night before I went into labor with Brave, so the fair definitely is a special place for us. Plus, I just love being with my family!

One of my favorite memories of this year’s fair is how the whole ride there, True and Brave kept singing, “Our state fair is a great state fair. Don’t miss it! Don’t even be late!” They love Rodgers and Hammerstein and know most songs from the musicals!

Do you have a fair that comes around once a year?

    Huge fan of the hats! And very jealous of True’s stylish outfit! I love it!

  • I love that your girls love musicals. My sister and I grew up watching musicals with our Mum, and I can’t wait to have kids and instill that love in them, too! <3

    How fun! My husband and I go to the state fair every year for the same exact reason! We’ve been going since the year we got married (it’s always a week before our anniversary) and it’s been fun to keep track of our years together. We’re heading their tomorrow night to celebrate number 7!

    I spy a builder bar! WTH! There’s great fair food and you all are eating bars?! WWBD.

  • I have a fair at the high school I attended with my husband. We usually go every year, but not always. We missed maybe one or two years in the past 12 years. Anyway, I love all these pictures and your girls are so cute in their little hats and sweet dresses.

    Love these photos!

    I used to go to the Royal Easter Show every year in Sydney when I was a child, now that I’ve moved to London, I wish I could find something to replicate it. What a tradition!

  • Our boys are young– this was their first year to the fair. I’m not quite sure we’ll make it back again, ha! But, seriously, there is just something so memorable and fun about a local fair. And boy is there lots of eye- candy for picture taking at fairs 🙂

  • The Puyallup Fair always marks the beginning of Fall for us in Seattle. We love to look at the animals and eat some great BBQ.

    All your girls = so adorable. 🙂

    Hi Ruby, We go to the Renfrew fair (Ontario) every year for the past four years.. We get the kids the bracelet for unlimited rides- they are 8 and 6 so it gets pretty price-y otherwise. We love the animals and square dancers, and all the cheesy rock blasting from the rides. This will be our first year there with baby number 3- who is two and a half months- Wish me Luck!!

      Hi shark! We went to the oc fair so I am not sure the l.a. Fair has the same specials. At the oc fair it was just $2 for the first hour on the weekends. Maybe call or check on the l.a. Fair site to see if it is the same? Hope this helps! xoxo
