Rurality Blog Hop - BoCo Fair

(click photo to enlarge) Botetourt County Fair, Buchanan

Well I told you we were going to run off to the county fair on Saturday and we did. What I didn't know is that it had been 50 years since they last had a county fair, which I learned from my blogging buddy Anita over at Blue Country Magic. She's lived here almost forever so she knows almost everything about Botetourt, or at least I think so :)

Anyways, I was standing over at the bb shooting booth waiting with Braden and Dalton to get their turn and heard these two girls sweetly singing hymns. I took a picture because I liked the sound of them and little did I know I knew these 2 girls. Their dad walked over to say hi (one of Braden and Dalton's football coaches) and told me the girls were singing!

We had a great time at the fair. Saw friends, ate a pork chop sandwich, learned about bee keeping, sampled some yummy salsa, fed horses, watched another of the boys' coaches wrestle sheep to get them back on their truck, sampled wine from 2 wineries, listened to some wonderful entertainment and when it felt too hot a light sprinkle fell from the sky. It was a perfect afternoon and I really hope they hold it again next year!

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope they do it again, too. Of course, Buchanan has its carnival every year, but that is different from a fair.

  2. I saw a little bit about it on channel 10, it will probably get to be a big event as people need something like this to build community.

  13. I love a good county fair. Sounds like you had lots to see and do.
    Ours was in the hottest week we've had in July; but we managed with our granddaughters to enjoy it by cooling down with iced tea and snow cones. :)
