Annual Visit to the Clay County Fair 2014

We really like the Clay County Fair, very well run, lots to do and we enjoy the old Florida section. We have taken AA to it every year (here's a few of the past posts: 2011, 2012 and 2013). We have probably said many times that this fair is clean, wholesome, true farmers and 4H style programs, free local music, lots of animal judging, rodeos, etc.

The cow stalls seemed more decorated this year.
First time seeing several litters of pigs at the fair:
We always walk through the chickens, birds, goats, rabbits, etc..... pens. AA's favorite hen (very fluffy!).
Pretty turkey:
Her annual pony ride, she's not too thrilled anymore now that she has been on a couple of trail rides:
The Old Florida section keeps growing and several organizations handed out free samples of "olde timey" foods: collard greens, ginger tomato bread (cake) and chicken and rice.
Lots to look at, blacksmith, cooking chicken over an open fire, quilters, the old schoolhouse, church, fire trucks, old jail, cane sugar pressing etc. Many old Florida "cracker" homes/buildings were donated and moved here for preservation.
The old commissary store:
We watched the log cutting and mostly boyfriends challenged their girlfriends to saw with them.
Waiting in line for the Ferris wheel ride:
AA was given this Snoopy at the old schoolhouse:
Wonderful Day!
