18 September 2015 Albion Fair

It was fair time! We were ready for vacation, and the timing was perfect for kicking it off at the Albion Fair. We were here in time for the riding activities and watched the costume contest. I don't remember a banana in Fruit of the Loom but the costumes and horses were popular.

Ali was happy to find a few friendly goats.

The produce and flower competition was lively with many good entries. I had not previously seen the tomato variety below.

I have a hard time picturing the era when Burbank, California was home to a manufacturing company making tractors, but the Earthmaster was originally a Burbank product. Those early ones from the late 40's are extremely rare, but one had made its way to Albion and was on display.

These antique pedal tractors seemed at home in the tractor display.

The midway was popular as always. We visited the stand of a nearby bison ranch for a bison burger.

I always lose to Ali when we race on the carousel. ;)
