Oklahoma State Fair

Wednesday was fair day for us. Beccy and Donna were kind enough to take an evening out of their week and accompanied us to the Oklahoma State Fair. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was a nice cool evening. We first thing on the agenda was pig races. It was a lot of fun watching the little pig’s race around the track to get to the finish for the grand prize of an Oreo cookie. These racer included Kevin Bacon, Lindsey Loham and Brad Pig.

We also watched Swifty the Swimming pig dive in and swim.

It was so funny to watch. Dawn and I have never attended pig races before.

We than walked thru the maze of food venders. They had every kind of fair food you could imagine and some you would have never thought of.  

We started off with the roasted corn. Man, that was good!

We then had an Indian taco. The Indian taco’s was outstanding.

After getting our fill for dinner we then walked through the fairgrounds looking at all the site. We walked through the auto building and also through a vendors building.  Dawn bought a t-shirt and I bought a sock monkey cap.
We then had a cinnamon roll. Donna and Beccy had warned us that they are the best cinnamon rolls made. They were right! They were the largest cinnamon rolls I have seen and they just melted in your mouth.

We left around nine o’clock. We were tired from all the walking but we had a really great time.
