Sponge Bob, Teddy Bears, T-Shirts, Cowboy hats...whatever you wnat you can get it at the fair...unless it's useful that is.
Don't look for olive drab and muted shades of gray here!
They promise you at the gate that there's NOTHING good for you to eat here. Lot's of good stuff that could kill you though.
A sea of brightly colored trailers and tents in stripes and wedges...mostly red and white.
I have a date with Lieby's later...
Where else would you find a Slushee Factory except at the Allentown Fair? I mean a whole factory! Not just an outlet or a retail shop.
Mr. Steak Sandwich...only comes with toe cheese...
Fair goers are drawn to the Ferris Wheel and the amusement rides like moths to a flame...
A little too exciting for me, but the Merry-Go-Round has lots of adventurous types.
This ride is called the Fire Chief...I guess it's for second story fires and jumpers...
The Hog Wild ride... Not a Harley in the bunch!
What Midway would be complete without games of chance and fat stuffed animals?
And deals galore! Where else can you get 35 balls for $5.00?
Nobody wants to miss the Zero Gravity ride. Even Captain Kirk and Dr. Spock were seen in the line...
Would any fair be complete without a symbolic ferris wheel?
Symbolism at dusk...
Bump 'em, bang 'em, hit 'em and drive 'em into the wall! Yeah!
The spider has more than a few Rugrats in it's clutches!
Even from 50 feet away this whirling, twirling ride made me wanna toss my lunch.
If you don't hurl on this twirling, spinning thingy you get a stuffed animal.
The spin and puke ride...
Most people actually survive this ride. Don't walk directly under the flipping car though...
What Fair or Carvival would be complete with out a Tilt-A-Whirl?
This is not a catapult. It looks like a catapult, but it doesn't toss it's riders into the parking lot where they pile up like discarded toys after Christmas. It's supposed to be fun...if you like soiled underwear.
Daisy Duke isn't ashamed to come out into the arena naked and do her business.
A peek through the bleachers at Daisy...
Whoops! Accident! Though I bet Daisy did it on purpose. She's ornery that way.
Daisy plays the harmonica too! I wouldn't feel threatened if I were Louie though.
Bingo? This doesn't look like the boardwalk.
This guy has to carry just a few too many things. Maybe you should put down the machettes and carry the apple over first?
This is NOT an accident waiting to happen. This is his recovery.
How hard is it to ride a bicycle down a ramp?
Robinson's Paddling Porker's pig racing is the real name of this event!
