This the the fair that comes to my town (about 15 miles away from my house).

What kind of things do you all have?

The North Carolina State Fair. I don't go. I hate it.

WI state fair. Honestly, the biggest draws for me are thus- cream puffs (they really do draw in the crowds), maple-sugar candies and interestingly and well flavored milks. None of the events are really interesting, but there are worse ways to spend an afternoon.

I'm relatively certain that agricultural fairs are uncommon in Nevada.

The North Carolina State Fair. I enjoy it, even if Demonslayer doesn't. The food is probably my favorite part, as well. Otherwise, I just like looking at everything. It's got lots of rides and related booths that are entirely uninteresting to me. But there are a lot of crafts and other sorts of displays around that I do enjoy.

I'm from the big city. Growing up I never thought state fairs happened anymore, but died out at some vague point in the past and lived on only in nostalgic TV shows. It's kind of hard for me imagine them taking place in 2004, but then again, I don't have much of an imagination.

Agreed, dampeoples. The crowds are horrible. And last year... we had a shooting or something. Silly, silly "gangsters".

I'm glad I live in Idaho. No gangsters or anything like that. We do have wannabes.

Fairs around here...nothing really big, unless you count the occasional ones at the fairgrounds. Just a bunch of animals and artists; it isn't the best thing that's ever happened to me.

EDIT: Oh, but on the bright side, you get free baloons and cookies! :D

The idiodic(sp?) fair/party/random idiocy that the neighborhood arranges every summer. They goes as far to display cars, not special ones, mind you, ordinary, everyday cars. The day it runs I hide in the house and read/play computer games.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, we also have the Baltimore Book Festival and Artscape. I like both of them.

We have the spokane international fairgrounds at our place with mostly stuff like booths, rides, cars, etc. Oh yeah, and lots of animals too. Then we have things like car and gun shows, locomotive stuff, and things like that throughout the year.

Most of the time, yes, but I take walks and pet all the cats and dogs in my neighborhood too.

We have the NM state fair. I have never been there though. My class is going on a field trip there on Friday actually. I can't go though because I take quite a few classes outside of the standard classes for my grade and I can't miss all the work. It would be too much.

That you neglect to mention the Aryans suggests something about your personality.

Well, at least someone does.

I go to no fairs, although the Washington County Fair is big around here. A big drain on the wallet is all it is. Not really worth it.

Something about my personality?

The Aryans live about 500 mile driving disince from where I am. I was talking about the fair in SOUTH EAST Idaho. They don't even live in the same time zone as I do.

EDIT: The fact that I had to look up what or who the Aryans are might suggest something about my personality. =P

The Kentucky state fair in Louisville, KY rules. Everyone comes out of the woodwork (and the hills) for it, and it's the only place you can go where you can ride a rollercoaster, watch a pipe-smoking contest, behold the winner of an ugliest lamp contest, and then have your eardrums burst in a stadium concert performed by Grand Funk Railroad, all in the same day, at least as far as I know.

Protest Marches. Oh, and sometimes we do have dance thingies and such. No fairs as such. We used to have pop festivals where rock stars would come and play stuff. As well as the usual big city activities.

I used to go to the Tendring Show, an agricultural fair in my part of Essex. Animal shows (dogs, sheep, goats, rabbits, poultry, rats etc.,) various field sports demonstrations, particularly in the main arena (bloodhounds, carriage driving, falconing, demonstrations of how to reload a shotgun cartridge and the like,) an exhibition of work from the schools of the district, old cars, new car dealers, cheap sunglasses and camping equipment, tractors and the like. Not really my kind of thing.

I haven't seen much like it anywhere else and I think its survival is mostly due to the fact that the area is rich enough that the locals haven't been priced out of the house market but we're just far enough out of the commuter belt for people to actually feel they have a connection with the land. It's still fairly small, however. It pales into insignificance compared with a major music festival.
