Fair Food Feast Parade ~ Day 1

To those new to the “It’s the Fair!” blog, I should explain.

In my normal everyday life, I am a pretty healthy eater. I like salads and Greek yogurt and homemade smoothies and bottled water and lean meat. I rarely if ever eat mayonnaise or butter and allow myself only one soft drink a week, if that. So yeah, lots of rules.

But come Fair Time, all those rules disappear. I allow myself to eat anything and everything I want. And usually by the end of the 10 days of the Fair, I am set on junk food for the rest of the year.

Since it can be difficult to keep track of all that I eat at the Fair (you’ll see), I found it is easier just to ask my husband to take pictures of me eating whatever sounds good in the moment. And so tonight…and for the rest of the Fair…I will be capping each day’s blogs off with a Photo Parade of everything I ate.

So with that, here is what I ate today.  And unless otherwise noted, I eat everything pictured by myself and to completion.


The Cordon Blue grilled cheese sandwich from Get Cheezed. Chicken, ham, Swiss cheese, and Dijon mustard. SO good and highly recommended.



The Northwest Berry Smasher from a booth next to Get Cheezed. Blackberries and raspberries. Very refreshing and a bargain at $4 for that huge cup.



LOVE the corn at the Fair!



Cinnamon and pineapple Hawaiian Shave Ice. A favorite combo I remembered from last year.



Chocolate dipped frozen banana from the booth next the Grandstands entrance. Very tasty and they dipped it while I waited.



Fried chicken from the Lions Booth. I can’t remember the last time I had fried chicken! Oh, wait. It was last year’s Fair. Mmmmm.



Capping off the night with deep fried cookie dough. A favorite that I’ve waited all year to have again. Gotta admit, though, my tummy is still talking to me about this one.

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
