We went to the El Paso County Fair today and had a great time! I thought I’d show you a few pictures and then give you a list of the things that I noticed were free since there’s still time to get out to Calhan for the fair. (It runs through Saturday the 26th and there are still plenty of discount days left.)
The kids declared this the “best day of their lives”. I must warn you that they must have pretty low expectations, because we had fun but I’m not sure I’d say it was that thrilling, but hey – I went for them to have a good time, and that goal was fulfilled.
Here are some of the things that we did that were free:
- Kids’ tractor pull (ages 4-12. around three times per day)
- Home Depot kids workshop station (you can build one of the kits that they offer on their Saturday morning workshops)
- Wild About Monkeys show (we really liked this one!)
- Various other shows
- Petting zoo
- Skeeball at the pavilion (I don’t know if this is every day or not – it was people advertising a festival in Ramah)
Also, I happened to notice that the funnel cake that we bought at a stand near the back of the fair (next to the Wild About Monkeys show) was $1.00 cheaper than it was over by the rides.
If you have any other tips on the fair, please comment!
