    How many of you all like going to the county fairs. And what do you go for Food, Rides Or the entertainment they usually have? Myself the main reason I go to the PIKE CO Fair is on Sat they have a horseshoe tourn. Love playing horseshoes Then that night they are having A locol girl Debra Ingram,then Keith Anderson and Then Miranda Lambert. After that Fireworks. So it ought to be a pretty good day/night.

    Course wife won free tickets so that helps. Won 4 daily passes so that helps. Can use them any day that you want.

    NO i dont like to go to the fairs....

    but if i do i just go to the demo derby and thats one of two reasons i would go

    other reason is if i got a gf and she is there and she wants me to come up there too....


    there are the two reasons why i would go to the fair....

    but i did like the state fair that was kinda neat but not the local fair...

    I like the food-corn dogs and funnel cakes.I also have a couple friends that run in the demo derby every year,so I go to watch them also.Sometimes they have pretty good bluegrass music also.Well,any bluegrass is good to me.

    I go to check out the rednecks. They really come out of the woodwork for a good corndog. Hang on, I like corndogs and have been called a redneck. Maybe people come to check me out.
