It’s safe to say we’re in full Fair mode over here. Over the next few weeks our campus will slowly but surely transform into the Fairgrounds that 1.3 million guests trek through each year.
We have just begun set-up, but you can already tell it’s going to be an epic year:
The dinosaurs are taking their time migrating over here, but our entrance is almost built and ready to welcome guests in September.
The Big Red Barn is almost ready for our farm animals! Our petting zoo is in the process of being set up (left photo.)
If you walk a little further in, you can see where the cows, pigs, goats, sheep and other animals are going to be too.
Our team has already brought in familiar barn facades, hand-washing stations, and stages for our shows.
Sky Shivers will be driving down in a few weeks with all your Fair favorites, along with a few new friends!
One of our favorite spots, the DIY Design Studio, has made quite the transformation over the past couple months. Fair guests near and far have submitted their entries for our annual contests (jewelry, quilting, photography etc) and our team is busy putting everything up for display.
It seems like every day there’s something new that’s being built! Stay tuned here and on the official Fair blog to see what’s in store for the 2016 Fair.
