Wow!!! Today was the first day of the Erie County Fair, and what a day it was!!!! I arrived about 1:30 and the gates had not opened yet, so decided to hang out in the Casino for a half hour. Nice way to kill some time!!! Didn't win, but had fun!!!
I entered at the relatively new Gate 4. It is located almost right in the casino and makes for an easy walk to Slade Park for the day. I was really amazed at just how busy it was today! Almost crazy, but I know that the $2 admission was the reason for that. Where can you go these days for such an inexpensive gate price???
After getting a table in Slade Park for later, we started out on our adventure! It was first off to the Creative Arts area to check out the exhibits and see who won some coveted ribbons. There were a lot of really good things on exhibit, and lots of red, white, and blue all around.....those ribbons just catch your eyes.
