*Friday afternoon, Rita, Patsy and I met up and rode together to the State Fairgrounds (now known as RIR) to attend the Virginia State Fair.
Once inside the gate, and despite the overcast skies, we were greeted by a riot of color from the food vendors and rides:
The only ride we braved was the tram from the parking lot to the front gate:
We also strolled through the arts & crafts building and made sure to get pictures of all of ribbon-winning items knit by some members of our knitting group:
Amy's socksI took lots of pictures of other knitting and needlecrafts entered in the arts & crafts competitions, and will be posting them out to Flickr within a day or so. Link will be here, eventually.
After arts & crafts and lunch and funnel cake, we stopped in to see a few animals:
Thanks, Patsy & Rita, for going to the fair with me!
