XX. Town Fairs & Cultural Festivals


I didn’t want to do this, because I don’t want to go to anymore town fairs than I have to for museum purposes, but several people said I should because I have a couple funny pictures from a couple fairs. That’s right, I don’t like town fairs. I don’t like fair food and I see no allure in judging vegetables like this picture shows. I find them overpriced, repetitive and slightly embarrassing. I didn’t grow up here, so they aren’t part of my DNA. I’ve never been to the Big E. But I do recognize their function as a time-killer when you have kids, so there’s that. I’d be far more apt to go to random cultural fairs like the Ukranian Festival I pass in New Britain every summer. So maybe I’ll throw some of that in here too.

Now, I don’t have many pictures from some of these things, so this is all pretty stupid.
