OK~ There are such things as county fairs, all across our awesome country. Many parents that I speak with have no clue as to what happens at a county fair. They often respond with, "My kids won't have a good time."
Iowa has county fairs around every corner. In fact, the Worth County Fair runs June 17th- 21st, 2015. This fair is located in North Central Iowa, near the Iowa/Minnesota border. I have spent a lot of days at county fairs throughout the years and let me tell you, your time spent at one, will be time well spent.
Meet Up With Neighbors
Let's face it. Many of us only have conversations with our neighbors through Facebook, so why not head out to your local county fair and have a real conversation with them? Your kids will enjoy meeting up with neighbor kids while exploring the animal barns.
And of course, there is the food. Who wouldn't enjoy eating a snow cone with a friend on a hot summer like day?
Learn A New Hobby
Check out the 4-H and open class exhibit halls. Here you will find amazing projects and an opportunity to find your new hobby. Maybe photography is something you have been wanting to dabble in. Your county fair is the perfect opportunity to meet some experienced photographers and maybe even learn a trick or two. County fairs are known for having some awesome seminars where you can meet an expert on a specific topic or two. Make that first step, SHOW UP!
Summer is a time to kick back and relax. Unplug with your family from your technology and visit your local county fair. Here you can meet people, play in the sun, participate in a contest or two.
County fairs often have tractor pulls for adults and kids, hay bale stacking contests, cutest kid contests, and other fun stuff!
Make that first step by getting out the door and unplugging to visit your local county fair. There's summer fun around every corner and it's often right in front of you. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
