Alaska State Fair

Since i didn't die of cancer last week, we decided to celebrate by going to the Alaska State Fair. Firstly, these chickens freak me out. Especially the one with the gross head.
Now, with that said, i was surprised by the fair. The fair, which is out in Palmer, is of course considerably smaller than the one i was used to from North Carolina. I expected acres of livestock and produce, miles of games and ride after ride of goodness. instead there were 5 rides, mostly tea cup variations/ferris wheels, about 100 yards of games, and enough stands selling hot tubs to last all of Alaska.

High points were definitely that we went to a lumberjack show and checked out the huge veggies:

Rumor has it that there is a world record setting pumpkin coming in this week---1800lbs or something.
