This week’s theme for the Friday Five! is the Alaska State Fair. This event has been held for over 75 years in Palmer, Alaska and regularly draws close to 300,000 attendees.
We like State Fairs, and Alaska’s was no exception. It definitely had a different feel than other state fairs we’ve attended. For one thing, it was pretty chilly. Most state fairs don’t require a coat! I also don’t remember seeing even one corn cob or any butter sculptures – both are mainstays at most state fairs. But the differences made the fair special and we enjoyed the experience. We’ll definitely head back if we are back in Alaska in their fair season (end of August – beginning of September).
