The DuQuoin State Fair has been going on from August 26 to today. Interestingly, the fairgrounds were built in 1923 by a man who privately owned the "state" fair for 63 years. Illinois holds it's original state fair in Springfield and now also runs this one down south in DuQuoin, IL which is just about a 30 min drive for us. Brandon and I checked it out for a couple of hours last weekend. Mostly we just wanted some good eats!
Paula Deen moment.
We returned to the fair yesterday ... to be continued...
PS: I just finished reading The Hunger Games. So good, can't wait for the movie!! Anybody want to borrow it?
