  • " This was paradise for me! My eyes feast on every booth that I walked through. It’s just amazing how creativity flows in everywhere I look. What I enjoyed the most is seeing the smile of satisfaction of people as they admire their newly acquired item. It’s like you can see heaven through their eyes. "

  • " There's plenty of fair food to be had there, not to mention some tasty lamb from a few vendors.  For the best food, go in the 4-H building and either purchase a BBQ sandwich or a leg of lamb sandwich.  Yum! "
