Last night was a beautiful night and we decided to go the NYS Fair. I like going with a list of things to do so I don’t forget anything. First up, the OHA Onondaga Lake exhibit along with the other Onondaga Lake exhibits.
A dredge cutter head – Onondaga Lake is in the process of being dredged.
Examples of fish in Onondaga Lake. Wow.
A bald eagle. Poor eagle, sitting all caged up.
Then on to the sand sculpture – which was still being created. Hmmm, I was kind of disappointed that it wasn’t ready for the fair, but at least I got to see most of it.
One side a guitar. . .
The other side produce, and. . .
A farm scene.
Then to the Empire Theatre where we were hoping there was going to be organ music, but no, now it’s limited to Mon & Tues. So we skipped out of there and went to see the model train display.
A great model of the 4th New York Central Railroad train station on Erie Blvd. in Syracuse.
I love the circus posters!
Beautiful roses in the Horticulture Building.
The butter sculpture, which is always fun to see.
Then the history of the New York State fair, which has some of OHA’s images in it.
They had models of previous years’ butter sculptures:
Then eating at P-Z-O’s, which is only at the fair, which is too bad, because the red sauce is good. A family sat at the same picnic table next to us, and the kid spilled her water all over me. At least it was just water.
Then we’re done, and as we’re walking back to the gate, we saw cows being walked.
And the daily parade. Which I just realized this morning, while I was watching it, I was being televised, so I was on TV. If I find the clip, I’ll post it here!
