HBO Question: North Idaho Fair

I’ll attend the North Idaho Fair tonight with my wife and four other members of my extended family. I generally attend on opening night when all the flowers and vegetables are still very fresh in the exhibit barns. I enjoy looking at the exhibits, gabbing with friends I haven’t seen in awhile, and grabbing a huckleberry ice cream cone. I rarely make my way to the midway b/c I don’t like rides or having carnies barking at me in an attempt to get me to play their games. I’m amazed most by the cleanliness of the grounds at the North Idaho Fair.

Question: Why do you attend your local fair?

*Moto-cross races
*Food court
*See old friends
*Something to do
*I don’t
