This week's Picture Daze edition is a small sampling of life here in the Big "NO". These pics were taken last weekend.

The annual Big Fresno Fair was in town and scarysquirrelman and I decided to grace the event with our presence. The traffic was ridiculous but we finally made it into the in-field parking, past the metal detectors, through the scary tunnel and out into the Fairgrounds.





I am constantly amazed by the humanity I see at the fair. It truly is a cross section of the city's population... every social, economic and racial stratas are represented.

It's a huge county fair with local livestock and produce displayed with pride and for competition. In fact this particular cloven hoofed critter has award winning udders. SSM seemed quite taken with her.






Every town in the county turns up with their produce to be judged... it's quite the buzz. My personal pick this year for fruits & veges galore was the city of Easton.











Then there is fair food! Everything seems to be deep fried and on a stick. Here is SSM in mid-chomp on a corndog. I went for a hotlink myself. I suspect checking out the award winning udders earlier significantly affected our food choices.











We had dropped some bucks at the horsetrack earlier and I think that eating a whole load of heart attack food provided some comfort for our losses. Of course no trip to the fair is complete without visiting the Commerce & Industry pavilion.

Exhibitors hawk every thing from hot-tubs to gadgets that are halfway useful. This sign made us very curious. Turned out to be attachments to a weedwhacker.

There are of course the concerts, etc. But for me this annual event is a reminder of the heart of the valley... the fact that this area is known as the "bread-basket of the world." It's a celebration that I live in a place that toils the earth and am blessed that our food is always fresh.

It's all about the food really.

    I've been going to the fair since I was little---the funnel cakes and elephant ears are the best fair 'fare'---the animals are the best, too! I bet you had lots of fun. :)

    wait a minute. you used photo shop in my boobies and they still look like drowned cats in a burlap bag? at the expense of sounding vain and in-denialish, get a new picture program, bub. they were perky from the git go...maybe it was dropping $40 on the horse/mule/nag/glue factories that did it.
