From fair to fair!

Once a year we are having a "Fair" where I live, but this time we preferred to visit another town who has having a "Fair" too the same day. It is a more than one hour drive from our place. But driving together with my hubby is moment to cherish.

And now here we come! The sign says in English "Welcome to Rissa".

Green grass. My entry to ABC Wednesday

   This is me with the wheat field at the background! Soon it will be  harvest time.


But we are going to the Fair. So come along.


You might think that we are going to a barn seeing these horses.


But as you can see, they rent these horses for kids that want a horseride.

Anyway, the dogs are out too to visit the fair.

Well, they are lucky that they are alive and free. Unlike this swine. It's life ends there to be a food for the hungry visitors. One of the menu for the day.



And an expert from the Philippines, Winston grilled people's lunch that day. Well, that is life. One's man death is another one's bread.



Well, how about that! Meeting fellow countrymen. Really, the Filippinos are eveywhere. Feels like home.


And they are selling lumpia, pancit and siomai.


Anyway, there are more to see. Here are old cars and tractors. Just for display.



Different activities like a ride in a helicopter, rolling in  big plastic ballons and tournament.

My entry to Skywatch Friday!
And of course different stands selling their products. like this one. They sells thick and warm clothes and shoes.



I want this one, but it is not for sale:)




More products to sell!

Lots of them...

And flowers everywhere....

But I didn't buy anything than pancit and lumpia. And for dessert my husband bought ice cream in cones for us. Isn't he sweet?


But this one touched my heart. A girl from Russia who had her pet with her. A turtle.


This cutie made our day at the fair complete.

Did you have  a nice time with us?

  4. Joy, dear!

    You did it. I am so glad. When I get time I will make you a button of your journal too.

    I will come back to peer closely the photos later. I love looking at your pictures. Makes me imagine I was right there with you. And may I snag some photos again. I will soon make some inspirational pictures for my group at Harmony(A social network) and I will make themes for them also when I get time.

    Blessing my Joy!

  7. Thank you for this pleasant walk with you! But where is Rissa? There are a lot of Norwegian words in your photos, like : velkommen and kjirka. Are you in Scandinavia?
    Have a great weekend.

  14. Takk for besøk! Jeg laerte norsk når jeg var ung.Min mann laerte også norsk og vi besøkte norske sjømannskirken i Rotterdam. Vi reiste til Norge nesten hver ferie. Vi elsker Norge og vi hadde mange venner i Norge.Når barna var lite vi reiste til Norge og England. Men nå bor en datter i Australia og reiser jeg til henne.
    Det er veldig morsamt å møte deg her i Blogland. Mannen min var død i 1999.En datter bor her i Krimpen og min sønn ikke langt fra her.Jeg har fem barnebarn.
    Neste år skal jeg vaere 80 år! Ha det bra, Joy!

  17. Thank you for taking us to this fair. It was a wonderful experience. It must have been quite large since helicopter rides were available. Roast pig is a popular feature at fairs over here as well.
