Photo Trip Report: Pima County Fair

The Pima County Fair comes to Tucson every year and every year we venture off to see what weird things they have. This year was different in that we did what our kiddos wanted to do. Jackson (age 5) and Griffin (age 2) have already been to Disneyland so when we told them we would be going to the fair they got extremely excited because it was "going to be like Disneyland". I told them not to get their hopes up but we ended up having a great time.

Jackson was able to ride a couple rides and Griffin loved watching everything....and eating a chocolate covered banana. One thing that's great about the fair here in Pima County is that people sell off their cattle and chickens to bidders. We were able to catch some of the auction and a rooster went for $1,200! I'm in the wrong business!

If you're looking for a ton of pictures of Fair rides...this is not your report. This is a report about what the younger generation does at the Fair because they are still too small to ride the major attractions.

Enjoy the pictures and comment below!

Reminds of the old days at the Stanislaus County Fair in Turlock, California, when I was a kid. Thought I was gonna die on the Toboggan.

A $1200 Hei-Hei!?!! Clearly we're all in the wrong business.

Thanks for the report! Looks fun and all...but man...I wish we just had one single decent roller coaster within 400 miles. Metrocenter is half closed/abandoned by Castles n' Coasters, hell you could easily plop in a parking lot mega lite. I wouldn't complain.
