Fall for Fairfax 2010
You probably can't see it, but at the top of the hill, there was a plastic ice cream cone that Jack saw immediately. The kid, when properly motivated, can see like an eagle.
The crowds were crazy this year because there were twice as many vendors and twice as many people as well. Looks like Fairfax is getting serious about their Fall Fair and even closed off North street to accommodate the extra room that was needed.
We ran into our Congressman and got a picture with him, but it isn't the best photo so I am not posting it. Hopefully he will make it past his first term as a congressman when the election is next month. He isn't perfect, but he is better than the alternative.
We also ran into Kristin, of "Mommy Needs a Cocktail" fame. She was selling her pithy, cute shirts as usual, she had some new stuff and had just got back from Colorado where she went to a brewing convention and was selling her "Daddy Needs a Beer" shirts. She has inspired me to do similar shirts with funny sayings. She offered to let me use some of her silk-screening equipment if I wanted. She really is nice and Kate just loooves her.
Kate and Kristin.
I love Fair Food, elephant ears, hot dogs, chicken wings, fries and gyros. You just can't go wrong with Fair food, except how its expensive and the calories.
Another shot of the Fair.
