The 40th annual Elizabethtown Fair opened this evening with a gorgeous night. Temperatures were in the 70s, and what seemed like the threat of precipitation held off. Maybe that's why the crowds were a little thin when my sons and I arrived just before 7:00. By the time we left at about 8:20, I'd say the crowds were getting back to "normal" levels for such a great evening.
|Youngsters were showing hogs this evening.|
|Mayor Chuck Mummert spends nearly the whole week at the fair.|
Some things never change: The crowds were thin, but my sons and I still waited 20
minutes for a milkshake from the Elizabethtown Grange. It was well worth the wait.
|The food court was busy.|
|The moon, as if on cue, made its appearance over the Ferris wheel.|
|As we left after 8:00, the midway was getting busy.|
