The County Fair

This weekend marks the final days of the Stephenson County Fair. Normally every year we make it a point to visit the 3 county fairs we consider our county fairs. Ogle, the county we live in, Winnebago, the county Jake works for, and Stephenson, the county where we buy our food in. This year however we didn't get to the Ogle or Winnebago so we missed out on 2 weeks worth of fair food. Today however we made it to the fair, had fresh squashed (yes squashed, not squeezed) lemonade. This was somewhat disappointing, as it was weaker than what the Dakota Marching Band usually sells. We go to the fair just for their lemonade! We also hit the Illinois Pork Producers Hog Heaven stand and had lunch. We watched 2 tractor pulls. The first had a winning weight of 12,750 lbs for 11 feet and 7 inches.

The second tractor pull had a winning weight of 30 lbs for 29 feet 5 inches.

All in all, it was a good day at the fair.
