Our State Fair
Don't miss it; don't even be late.
It's dollars to donuts
That our state fair
Is the best state fair in our state.
Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II
From: State Fair (1933)
Today, our Meme Express prompt is all about state and county fairs and carnivals.
Here are a few questions, to get you started:
Did you attend a state or county fair this summer?
Where was it held?
If not this summer, have you ever attended a state or county fair?
What is your favorite exhibit, activity or ride?
Have you ever entered a contest at a state or county fair? How did you do?
What is your favorite fair food?
Do you recall any special memories from a fair you attended?
In your post, feel free to use the images, lyrics and questions or not.
Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)
Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
