i've been going to the hardwick fair since i was 2 years old. an old time country fair complete with wagon rides, chain saw competitions, games, antique tractors, cattle shows and where you enter your art project, canned goods, baked goods, garden produce or dozen of eggs to win yourself the coveted blue ribbon. no amusement rides, flashy displays or other craziness. just pure country.
i love it there. and love that i get to share it with my family. ella and i are already talking about what projects we'll enter next year...and look forward to bringing home a blue ribbon of our own!
