Recently Jay & I have been staying close to home. Traveling has been on the back-burner while we try to pinch pennies. Fortunately, Atlanta has so awesome things to see and do! Each weekend we try to take a date night around our work and football game schedules. (Can’t miss the Cowboys, Mustangs, or Gamecocks 🙂 )
In the past few months we’ve: gone to a NEED TO BREATHE concert, saw Crazy Rich Asians at the movie theatre, gone dancing with friends and, for our one-year anniversary, went to one of our favorite Mexican Restaurants. Then for two weeks in a row we decided to order Chinese food and Outback while watching Jurassic Park and then The Lost World.
This past weekend we decided to check out the Georgia State Fair. I’d never been, and it seemed like something fun to try. I was unsure of what to expect since I’m used to grandeur of the Texas State Fair. However, I minimized my expectations and made up my mind to have a wonderful time no matter how small or boring the fair may be. Boy was I wrong! The Georgia State Fair was so much fun! It was small, yes. However, we still got to eat fried Oreos and funnel cakes, ride endless attractions, and see a very impressive circus.
Honestly, I think the circus was both of our favorite parts. I’ve seen Cirque du Soleil about 10 times, so I thought I would be disappointed with the free circus provided at the fair but, again, I was wrong! It was very impressive. The performers had incredible acts and talent. It was like going to an old fashion Barnum & Bailey Show (without the wild animals).
At the end of the night I bought some fresh produce from a local farmer and have been eating on it all week. All in all, I would highly recommend the Georgia State Fair to anyone looking for a fun way to get out this fall!
Perhaps you hate fairs? Perhaps you hate fun? You do you, boo.
