The first week of July is the Salem Fair here in Salem Virginia. We go every year, walk around, snack on great fair food and check out all the exhibits. Chris and I had a great time and we even got to eat some Kettle Corn (which is our favorite popcorn to eat). Below are some photo from our Salem Fair outing. Enjoy!
 This is a baby Dromedary Camel. They are white and will turn brown as they are growing up.

 The baby Dromedary Camel was giving his human mommy smooches while she was trying to bottle feed him.

 Here are tow baby African Equids otherwise known as Zebras. It was a long hot day and now they are resting in the cool breeze of the summer evening.
 I don't know what all the animals are called but here are some photos of some cute exotic animals.

 This is a little Miniture pinto colt. He will probably finish his height out at around 32"-38"

 Here are a couple of Llamas resting after a long hot day. Check out the "lion" hair cut on the red Llama!

 Suuuueeeee! Suuuuueee! That's how we call pigs in Iowa!

Below are photos of the Salem Fair grounds at night. I love the bright lights against the dark July sky!
 I shot these with my new Nikon Coolpix P500. It is suppose to do really well in low light with no flash and I think the camera did a great job of photographing all the beautiful neon lights. What  do you think?

 Every kid's dream...A slushy machine with every flavor!

 I am a big horse lover so I absolutely love the old fashioned Carousel

 There were lots of toys to be won...

 Little Chihuahuas hanging everywhere!


 The Salem Fair had a couple of different sized Ferris Wheels so if someone is scard of going up really high they could ride in the smaller Ferris Wheel.

 A Fair would not be a true Fair without Funnel Cake.

They also had these cool little arcade games available for those who want to take a chance with their money to win more money.

 This is the smaller Ferris Wheel. I love the royal blue lights on this one.




 I love this old classic ride....The Zipper! Remember those when we were kids?

The End.
