Summer Fairs

Things I love about summer fairs:

- children drawing with chalk on closed off streets
- live bands even when they aren't good
- pancake breakfasts
- crafts booths
- library booksales
- children running around in car free zones
- waving to people in the parade
- a sense of community

Things I'm not so fond of in regards to summer fairs:

- cheap stuff that is either "free" or for which children whine for
- parents buying other people's children cheap stuff which perpetuates it (because then you have to buy their kids stuff or rush up and buy your kids it before it gets bought for you)
- sugar crashes once the parade candy wears off


  1. amen on the cheap stuff and the whining!

  2. Yeah I couldn't believe all the cheap plastic crap my friend's son brought back from a carnival. All of it destined to be broken or forgotten about within a day or two.

  3. I've nominated you for an award: http://biochemgradstudent.blogspot.com/2008/08/wow-for-me.html
