I do enjoy the state fair. I do not go for the rides, although there was a NYC themed horror ride that tempted me. The most dangerous ride is still called get out of the Parking Lot.
I enjoy the agricultural shows. The giant produce is amusing and 700 pound pumkins are always intersting. There didn't seem to be the 4 foot rat or freak show routine this year. This means that Uptown will have to find a new vocation.
I went to the livestock shows and found an interesting tidbit. Apparently, this Communist poultry bit is a New England thing, because the place was loaded with Muscovy " Commie " Ducks. The fair was sponsored by Proressive " Commie" insurance.
There were plenty of Chickens breeds, but no subversive fowl were noticed among about nine breeds. However, make mine fried and I could care less what breed it is.
