One of the things I like about the State Fair (besides the strange things on a stick you can eat) is the daily parade through the grounds. All the groups volunteer their performances, so the size of the parade varies from day to day. I've seen Senior Dance teams, antique cars, and many school bands.
I always enjoy the performances of the school bands. The kids try really hard. And they are usually pretty good. And the few goofs I sometimes hear can usually be attributed to nervous tension from playing before a much larger crowd than they've ever seen.
I stop and enjoy at least one tune before moving to my destination. After all, these kids are the future of our community bands and orchestras!
So get to the fair and enjoy the parade. Less fat and calories than anything you can get on a stick!
