Skywatch Friday blends into a Colorful Photo Hunt Saturday and then Camera Critters Sunday via the Upper Peninsula State Fair


Skywatch Friday blends into a Colorful Photo Hunt Saturday
and then Camera Critters Sunday via the Upper Peninsula State Fair.

The bright blue sky and fluffy white clouds made a wonderful backdrop for skywatch Friday.

You can't get more colorful than the midway at a state fair for the Photo Hunt Saturday colorful theme!

Had to have a hand dipped locally made ice cream cone as the day got warm.

With all the new babies that were born at the fair, I couldn't think of a better entry for Camera Critters Sunday.



This big old marine and the flags also made good back drops for more skywatch pictures.

This guy was HUGE - a real Foghorn Leghorn.

They had an awesome display of antiques. These kitchen antiques truly made me appreciate today's modern conveniences as did these garage tools for hubby.

The kids dioramas were really wonderful.



These two nose to nose were sooooooooo adorable.
And I think this guy needs a little more fiber in his diet.



They had a great sense of humor too.



The petting zoo was a big hit with all the kids!

I haven't been to a state fair in years and I always loved the animals. Thanks for taking me back in time to those trips to the fair.

I loved visiting your fair with you. It certainly did provide for a lot of great photos.

I think I like that pink pig the best, but they're all so much fun to see.

Great Sky Watch sky; very colourful for Photo Hunt & lots of lovely critters.

I enjoy the fair, St Giles is only a few weeks away. But, sadly we don't have any animals there.

Now THAT’s what I call ADMIRABLE ‘multi-tasking’ … impressive indeed. I enjoyed all the ‘fair photos’ and looking at them brought back lots of memories of my own visit similar events. Well done!
