Come one, come all, come to the Genesee County Fair! This week only! Located right here in Batavia, at the Genesee County Fair Grounds, 5056 East Main St. Rd. As someone completely obsessed with carnivals and fairs, of course I attended! It was absolutely wonderful!
My first order of business was obtaining a great big bag of cotton candy! It was so big, in fact, that I still have half of it left! Then I went directly to the 4H Rabbit Show. Rabbits are my favorite animal, so when I saw this event listed in the complementary event guide, I just couldn’t resist. It was a room with rows and rows of rabbits, it was like rabbit paradise!Once my husband successfully dragged me away from the show, we went to look at the wide array of other animals the fair had to offer. There were the biggest cows I had ever seen, pens and pens of adorable sheep, and lots of friendly goats!
Playing with all the animals was my favorite part of the whole fair. Well, except for the food…. Besides my giant bag of cotton candy, I also got some deliciously seasoned salt potatoes, handcrafted soda (with free refills), a snow cone and something I had never before heard tell of….TACHOS. When I saw them on the vendor’s sign I just had to know what they were. The answer, tater tots topped with nacho cheese, sour cream, and your choice of scallions. Let me just say, they were awesome.
The fair has lots of rides and games, from the classic carousel, to something that looked like an obstacle from the competition show Wipe Out. My husband was even able to win me this adorable little guy, by throwing darts at a wall of balloons! He is now a proud part of my plushie collection.
The fair also features dance teams, karaoke, horse competitions, a flea market, local vendors, and even a fire juggler! There’s just so much to see and do! It’s a good thing this event lasts all week!
So hurry, hurry, step right up! Don’t miss your chance for tons of family-friendly fun and games! The fair is only in town until July 25th, you definitely don’t want to miss it!
