Something changed. The crowds shifted a bit. We went inside a building to look at prize-winning vegetables and crafts and herbs. We bought snow cones and cotton candy. The kids tentatively went on a couple of rides. We bought candy apples and settled into the stands to watch the costumed horses. The kids relaxed and laughed and gleefully shouted out who they'd pick to win the contests. When we left, it was grey and cool and the lights were brighter and suddenly we didn't really want to go and decided the fair was actually rather nice.
See you again next year, fair. Maybe I'll even get to free lens from the top of the ferris wheel. (Who am I kidding, I'll be trying to convince myself I won't die.)
