The 12 days of the Ohio State Fair are my favorite days of the year. Of course everyone has their own reasons to visit the fair but as I’m sure you can guess, I LOVE the horse show.
I’ve attended the fair every year of my life, and there were times when the fair was 17 days long that I attended everyday. Nowadays, I usually attend during the draft horse show. I have friends that show plus I just love to watch those horses stomp around the arena with their harness chains rattling. What a rush!
When the fair was reduced to 12 days several years ago, many competitions started to be held before the actual fair opened. This week, I decided to attend some of those shows.
While I was on the grounds, I decided to take a quick tour to see how fair displays were coming together in preparation for the fair. I have included in this blog some pictures of the activities taking place on the grounds to ready the fair for visitors. I hope they get you in the mood to visit the fair July 25-Aug. 5. I can hardly wait!
