I love opening day at the fair, mainly because I love bargains. And the first Thursday of the fair is truly bargain day. Corn dogs for a buck, all day long; $1 off the normal price of funnel cakes; drinks for $1; admission fee, $1; oh, and the opening night concert, $5. Natalie and I each had three corn dogs; Monica opted for a funnel cake. The three of us shared a bag of cotton candy, and we had had ice cream cones at one point. I also like opening day because it's a much smaller crowd.
The temperatures were amazing for August: In fact, my sleeping bag was barely enough to keep me warm in our popup camper Thursday night, when it got down to 50 degrees. It was a great time, and I'll have more to tell later.
