Yavapai Fair Food Booth

Yavapai Fair Food Booth

Yesterday afternoon we walked to the Yavapai County Fair held on the Prescott Rodeo Grounds. The layout was different this year with more emphasis on the rides and less on the animals. A new company brought newer carnival rides with more choices for younger children. The Show Tent was being deconstructed as we passed by so we didn’t see any events there. We toured areas that housed chickens, turkeys, rabbits, pigs, cattle, llama/alpaca, and goats. Interestingly, many goats were wearing colorful masks. The roses and other flowers were past their prime in the Garden & Flower area. A variety of peppers are grown in Yavapai County. A prize winning plate of grapes caught my attention. The Fine Arts exhibit featured some creative work from county youth. The Photography exhibit always impresses me. Local photographers have captured some amazing landscape scenes. A finely focused color photograph of a hibiscus flower won a major award. We left the fair passing by the empty grandstand where musicians were playing to two small cadres gathered in shade at both ends of the entertainment stage. It was interesting to visit the county fair again this year.
