All the Fun of a Spring-time Fair!

If crowd numbers are anything to go by, Australians love Fairs!  Whether judging by media reports or witnessing first-hand, who could fail to be impressed by both the crowd numbers and attractions?

My husband Ron and I recently visited a local Spring Fair. The warm, sunny weather doubtless contributed to their impressive display. A contagious, carnival atmosphere permeated the scene!

While motor bike rides, stalls of  what-have -you: and even a Haunted House: drew plenty of admirers, my own favourites were the animals. Impeccably presented Shetland ponies were on hand, and didn’t the kids (and their parents) love them!  One mum  I saw seemed to be videoing her child’s entire pony-back excursion!

No less popular were the farmyard animals. Their ‘getting to know you’ pen remained at or near capacity, all the time I looked enviously on. What a joy it is to see the animals and birds mingling happily with young family members!

    Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
