One of our favorite things to do in the summer is visit the Washington County Fair. I grew up attending the Oregon State Fair in my hometown, Salem…but it’s expensive, crowded, and unchanged in over 3 decades. The Washington County Fair is like a smaller version of the State Fair, but is free and is only minutes from our house!
This year, we decided to visit the fair on the opening night–which was the perfect plan. As it was a Thursday night, it wasn’t nearly as crowded and, as we went after dinner, it wasn’t horribly hot. The kids, as usual, had a great time. And I was able to have my ice cream cone from the Dairy Women’s barn…perfect!
