If you’ve never been to the county fair, you’re missing out on a living tradition rich in the history and knowledge to which all of us are still tied in some form by the food we eat and the agrarian traditions that make all of our lives possible. Of course it’s far more than just a celebration of the animal husbandry and the skills of country living; the county fair is rural culture at its best with rides and funnel cakes and shows and … fun!

Sadly, the fair ended last weekend. Luckily, The State Fair in Pueblo begins on August 27.

The song in this piece is “Western Country by Shake That Little Foot and you can download it for free HERE.

    Fun subjects in these photos; the images are also really interesting because of colors, composition, and how they’re framed and cropped. Thanks.
