So yesterday was the Fall Fair at the Commons.
We hopped on our bikes and rode over—a great way to avoid parking problems—which meant that we came in from a side trail, and that meant the first things we saw was the agricultural exhibition; specifically, the animals.
The roosters were particularly photogenic.
Roosters weren’t the only thing on show! Look, a skinny pig (hairless guinea pig)!
There was an opportunity to win… something? by guessing the number of beans in this jar. I don’t think I won.
The Commons is really very beautiful, and they’ve put up some lovely new signs.
There was a dog show. Every single dog was a Very Good Dog, and every single dog won! (I’m not sure if they were trying to pry the dog out of the tunnel in this one, or what.)
Our buddy Bonnie.
Our buddy Yolanda. (Yolanda is a leonberger puppy. At 13 weeks old, as I recall, she weighed 45 pounds. Right now she is the softest, floofiest snookums imaginable.)
There was a parade, led by the Ken Capon Memorial Marching Band.
There was a float! It was all about protecting wild salmon and was pulled, of course, by a dog.
And there was, of course, the World Famous Squash Race. We left before that happened, but did get a good look at the racetrack.
All in all, as usual, a wonderful Fall Fair.
