Last Day at the Fair

Sept 13 - 15, 2012
Part 3 of 3
Still at the Fair
Albion, PA

Warning:  Lots of pictures of a little country fair, so if you're not into this sort of thing, skip to the next post.

The parade started at the High School and came into the Grand Stands
with two Color Guards 

Northwest High School marching band, just look at those uniforms and hats.  After the parade they were off to somewhere to compete with marching bands

Another high school marching band, I think from Girard, PA, about 10 miles away

All kinds of tractors

Brand new 2012

This sled was used to deliver the mail back in the early 1900's

Erie County Dairy Princess

Representing a pumpkin patch

Northwest Maple Queen (they make very good maple syrup here)

Little cheer leaders

Representing 4-H

I don't remember the year of this fire truck, but it's old.  
It is in perfect order and can be used on a call

Brand new 2012 hook and ladder, extends to 72 feet, they also had a new water truck

and of course..... "Send in the Clowns"

Odds and ends of exhibits 

After the parade came the animal parade over at the arena
There were LOTs of animals, but here are a few 

look at her feet

I love the color of this horse

That's about it, Joe says thats plenty, you don't want to bore the readers more than you already have.  We had a very good time.  If you are ever in the area, this is an annual event about the same time every year and they have a great web site, that's how I found them:  Albion Area Fair.

Have a blessed day, be safe and thanks for stopping by.
