Overall, this year’s State Fair was an enjoyable experience (it wasn’t littered with car dealerships) but there still were some oddities with the Kids Park.
Take this dart game:
|Doggy Dart Game|
Now, I’m not one for carnival games, but I can’t recall seeing one where the way to win is to hit the stuffed dog in his junk with a dart, let one hit it period. I’m more accustomed to hitting water balloons, but that’s just me. (Kids these days, I tell ya…)
That’s not all that was in the Kids Park:
Drinking alcohol at the State Fair is pretty customary; wine tasting is practically a time-honored custom, and beer is sold by the gallon. But to have a stand set up serving margaritas inside the Kids Park was a little over the top.
These might be some things to keep in mind for next year.
