More from the fair

I have a couple more pictures from the fair last week that I thought I would share with you.
Saturday afternoon we made it in time to see some sights and then catch this band.
I thought they were pretty good and what a variety they had. The first song we heard sounded like country, they did some ZZ Top and quite a few from the 50's.

Just a random shot here.
I haven't done any playing around with pictures in quite a while so this one I had some fun with.

My favorite at the fair was this guy.
(taken from the fair book)
Jerry Brown is a multi-talented showman who has been dazzling audiences young and old throughout the United States for 31 years.
Jerry is an accomplished juggler, magician, mime/clown, musician, fire-eater, animal trainer, stilt-walker, teacher and storyteller--and he is a master entertainer who holds audiences spellbound with the variety and uniqueness of his presentations.
His performances are a delight to all, and his monkey pal, Django will steal your heart away.

Your fair looks like a fun time! I would have loved to seen that monkey!

Django looks like a fun guy.

Oh Ann .... poor monkey - what a dreadful life for such a wonderful animal. They so need to live in troops for the social requirements of their happiness. The poor creature looks like a shrunken and miserable old man!

Django! What a cool name! :)

Is that food in his hands?

June Zach said...

Jerry Brown, the all around man! What a multi-talented guy! I am wondering if Django also has been working 31 years same with his pal? :)

The fair is great fun! I look forward to taking the kids and seeing my parents for our fair in October. Though I am not sure I will see a man with his monkey.

Audrey said...

Your "random shot" would make a great puzzle! That's the first thing I thought of when I saw it :)

Monkeys are really cute, but don't know if I would want one as a pet.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Oh, that looks like so much fun. I love outdoor festivals, especially with music. The perfect day.

catherine I should have pulled my camera out more than I did but I always hesitate for some reason when I'm out in public. I'm so silly

Bossy betty thanks, I'll see if I can get one sent to you, maybe Django has a brother...lol

B Boys mom he was fun, so cute

Nico it's even more fun now that the kids are gown and not draining me of money for the entire week...lol
