After not going for two years, I attended the 2021 State Fair on October 17, 2021. I had high hopes for the Fair as I do every year.
The Fair slightly held up to those expectations.
I always have a routine when I attend the Fair. I only go on three rides: the Skylift, Ferris Wheel, and Alien Invasion. For the rest of my time, I eat—a candy apple, turkey leg, funnel cake, fried mushrooms, and drink lemonade.
An Afternoon at the Fair
Waiting in Line
Overcooked Turkey Leg
The turkey leg tasted different this year; not a pleasant difference. The turkey leg is usually tender and juicy, but it was too burnt and barky to enjoy this year.
The turkey leg is one of the foods I enjoy the most and look forward to, so that was a disappointing start to the Fair.
Undercooked Funnel Cake
Starting a New Tradition
Before I got back to eating more food, I had a colored caricature of myself drawn. It can be a bit pricey, but I fell in love with my previous caricature and had to get another.
It took me a few hours to like this caricature, though. It’s a bit different from the one I’ve been staring at for two years by another artist. Still, ultimately it’s a cute drawing I’ll cherish forever.
Delicious Candy Apples
We walked around aimlessly for a few minutes until we reached the education and commercial buildings. We stop there every year to get Miss Debbie’s Specialty Apples.
I always get a new apple each year. The flavors range from Creme Brulee to Cotton Candy. I love coffee, so I got the Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato.
The apple was delicious. I loved the dash of caffeine I got in each bite and how the toppings and apple complemented each other.
