Tradition: Too Big to Miss!

The Oregon State Fair is currently in full swing here in Salem. It is one of those events I remember going to as long as I've been alive. Though they try to bring in new things to see and do every year, I love some of the standbys. You can still find scones in the scone booth on the main road, the animals are there stinking up the barns as they have always been, the folks who will tell you whether you'll go to Heaven or not are still setting up shop in their white tin booth, and the hawkers selling everything that will make your life better/cleaner/easier are still luring customers in Columbia Hall with their new gadgets. There is a lot to be said for tradition.

Wonderful photos! Wish we would have made it down this year, but I don't know when.
