I'm not used to this county fair stuff. I grew up on Long Island and trust me there was none of that kind of thing there. Seeing the sheep and wool festival in Maryland made we want to seek out more county fairs. I called my friend Pat who grew up on a farm. He told me the largest one in the U.S. is the Erie county fair in upstate new York. He said it wasn't so good but there was one or two little ones he knew of that were quite interesting. The only problem is I have to wait until the beginning of august. I didn't get to make as many drawings as I wanted to. I was too distracted by the homemade potato chips, lemonade, lamb sausages, hot dogs, kettle corn, lamburgers and various other treats you can't get in New York City.
