Boulder County Fair Photos 2016

What a treat to attend the 2016 Boulder County Fair last week. This county fair is the oldest county fair in the state of Colorado, begun in 1869. It was moved from Boulder to Longmont, Colorado in 1885.

These two fellas became my best friends instantaneously. In fact, I made many new best friends in the large goat barn that day.

Beautiful work horse but I'm glad I'm not in charge of feeding him.

The poultry building is large and filled with many varieties of chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys.

You can imagine the large variety of chickens and ducks by looking at these 3 egg cartons.

I certainly appreciated the heroic efforts of all of the fair participants. They spend a great deal of time and investment to contribute to the fair's success each year.
