2009 Olmsted County Fair Fun

county fair rides

It just so happened that I had a full weekend off to myself when the county fair was in town.  I’d be lying if I were to say I’m a repeat customer when it comes to this one…my sister and I definitely are Minnesota State Fair go-ers though…but the two of us, with time on our hands this past weekend, decided to ease into the fair season this year with a teaser trial.

We go for the animals:

More animals after the jump:

chicken at the olmsted county fairSomehow, I missed the chicken pens at the fair…was there a chicken showing?  This was the only one I saw that day…someday I’d like to raise a batch of hobby farm chickens…a la Martha Stewart…ones w/ fancy plumage or interesting colors…

rabbit at the olmsted county fair…and then there were the rabbits…lots of rabbits… some for show…
