It's a fact - I LOVE going to the fair!  I grew up in Seattle and the best time of year was when the Western Washington Fair (now the Washington State Fair) rolled around!  It's one of the biggest fairs in the country - and seemed even bigger to a pre-teen kid.

Since leaving Seattle I always find myself at whatever local fair presents itself.  I love the food, exhibits, animals, concerts, name it!

I moved to town about a week after the Western Montana Fair ended last year so I'm excited to check it out this week.  The 140th Annual Western Montana Fair & Missoula Stampede Rodeo begins Wednesday (8/7) and runs through Sunday (8/11.)
