I loved going to the fair growing up. I grew up in rural Ontario, in a small town just outside of Ottawa (well, many small towns outside of Ottawa), and part of the tradition was going to the county fair each and every year. The rides, the lights, the noise, the greasy food and seeing everyone you know made it all worthwhile. If you haven’t been to a fair, which I would be surprised to find someone in this part of the country who hasn’t been, you need to get yourself there as soon as possible.
Now that we live in Ottawa, one of my favourite fairs that is close to us is the Carp Fair. Called “The Best Little Fair in Canada”, the Carp Fair is the perfect size and offers a good variety of activities for people of all ages. There are just enough children’s rides to fend off boredom and enough bigger rides to keep the teens (and older!) entertained. Not to mention the horses, the live animals, the vendors, the food and more.
We headed over there tonight to take it all in, just Willow and I, and we had such a good time. As always, I brought my camera along to capture the adventure. We had so much fun, ate way too many sugary things and went on more rides and spent more time on the bouncy castle than we have all year. It was a lot of fun.
I hope you enjoy our photos from the fair! Are you taking your family there this weekend? Tell me about your experience in the comments.
