What to do: go to the Polk County Fair or watch Santana at home?

No real dilemma. I am going to watch Santana. Of course, by altering my plans to watch Santana, I probably will jinx him.

In fact, I did both. I ran into town to have a pork dinner at the Concordia Lutheran Church Ladies Aid stand. Excellent.

And then you run into people and the visiting starts. That's what the fair's all about.

County Fair

For the past thirty years, the nursery has rented a log cabin on the fairgrounds during the fair. For the past seven years or so, gift shop manager Dot, with the help of nursery employee Laurel, has decorated the interior of the cabin in different themes. This year, it is a swamp.
