Case in point: the New York State Fair.
I didn't realize how much I missed at last year's fair until this visit! There was honestly so much to see and do there that you could spend a couple of days wandering around and still not catch it all.
Our advice for tackling the fair is to go during the week if at all possible. Our Sunday visit was just a little bit crowded! The Fair's foot traffic usually hits around the million people mark and I think we were there with about half of that on the day we went!
We had a lot of fun showing our Texas relatives all of the things that make up the great state of New York. On the drive over to Syracuse, Aunt Bernardine mentioned she wasn't too impressed with the corn crops here. In fact, she called them 'spindly'. The corn may be bigger in Texas, but the Lone Star state pales in comparison to the snowfall totals around here!
|Amarillo, Texas with a measly 17.9" of snow|
|Albany with 62" of snow|
|Syracuse wins with 179" of snow...that's almost 15 FEET of snow!|
Colt got in on the action at the Dairy Barn with his dad. They knocked back chocolate milk like it was going out of style at just $.25 a cup!
We had a blast at the New York State Fair (again!) and would recommend to New Yorkers, Texans and everybody in between. Y'all will love it!
Here's a extended look of what we got to see and do during our visit:
