2010 Lorain County Fair

Well, my vacation and the 2010 Lorain County Fair were both winding down late in the week, so the wife and I made a beeline out to Wellington Thursday night. For a change, we got out there nice and early to walk around and work up an even bigger appetite.

As usual, the Fair was great, and we had our usual treats: dinner at the Midway Oh Boy booth under the Grandstand, a delicious Rutana's Apple Dumpling (hold the ice cream) for dessert and other goodies.

I don't know why, but the Oh Boy's were particularly good. They're always good at the Fair and at the restaurant on Lake Avenue, but every once in a while you get one that is perfect. Mine certainly was; it was all I could do to hold it for this photograph without taking a big ol' bite out of it.

I never get tired of the Fair; even though it's kind of the same thing every year, it's always enjoyable. There's usually a little hint of autumn in the air, as it gets a little chilly out there later in the evening.

It's also heartwarming to see all kinds of people there. We always marvel at the fact that many of the fairgoers are senior citizens who might be moving a bit slow, or perhaps might even be in a wheelchair. But they're there having a good time, and that's terrific. I hope I'm still going there in another thirty years.

Anyway, here are a few more shots of the 2010 Lorain County Fair. If you're a relocated Lorain Countian, plan to be in town for next year's Fair!
