The Fair is in Town.....

The fair came to town this weekend, the Enka Fair The weather was good and a great time was had by all. It usually will rain on one of the days, if not all. So the kids were able to ride the rides. If the lines weren't too long that is.....

The fair can be a money trap for most parents: rides, food, prizes, ect. We set up ground rules with our kids before they ever attend. They are allowed just 50 tickets each, and when they're out they're out . It takes about 4 or 5 tickets to ride the rides, so that gives them 10 to 12 rides. And since they have to spend their own money on food, they come home for food and bathroom breaks, since we live just 3 blocks away. How convenient....

The Enka Fair is organized by a large group of volunteers, the Enka Society. They have various events throughout the year to raise funds to give back to the community in the form of scholarships and grants. Especially supporting education.....


It takes a week to set everything up for the fair, the rides, the tents, and everything. And then in just a few hours after, everything is packed up and gone. Within 8 hours everything was empty and cleaned up. Sometimes I wonder how safe the rides can be when it takes just a bit to tear them down....Just a thought!

Are you going to some fair this summer??
