If there’s one thing that can get your heart racing, it’s a fair. Carnivals, county fairs – they’re all packed with excitement, thrill rides and delicious food. You never know what you’re going to find at a fair, which is why they’re always so much fun. This year, the Sonoma County Fair is back, and the theme is Tropical Fairadise. Dare to try out some of the rides and unique foods a the Sonoma County Fair!
Summertime is the perfect time to visit the local county fair and that is exactly what my hubby and I did the opening weekend of our local fair. I wanted to wear something that had my signature Pinup vibe and what could be better than this fun Cherry Velvet – Norma – Rainbow Ribbons – Magical Unicorn Dress. The print is enchanting with rainbows and unicorns floating through a magical galaxy with hints of glitter, hearts, and starbursts. The Norma dress is cut for curves and has pockets too!! You can read a previous post here about the figure flattering Norma dress. You can’t go wrong with a Cherry Velvet dress.
We got our tickets and walked through the gates and that familiar welcoming smell of deep-fried deliciousness was everywhere!! Oh my gosh, it is that familiar smell that immediately makes you hungry and puts everyone in a good mood. Monster corndogs, giant turkey legs, burgers, BBQ, giant pretzels, giant grilled sausages and peppers, mountain-high curly fries, cotton candy, funnel cakes, churros, and so many more yummy goodies to choose from. Hubby and I had our hearts set on the giant corn dogs and they did not disappoint!!
The carnival rides sure looked incredible with The Giant Pole Position Spinning Roller Coaster that is Italian made, has three levels, and five coaster cars. Everyone’s favorite the Ferris Wheel, The Vertigo Towers, Turbo Speed, Wave Swinger, Inversion, Super Shot, Zipper, Carousel and many more. There were also rides for children so definitely something for everyone from daredevils and thrill seekers to families and children.
The usual carnival games like ring toss, balloon blast, and so many more were there. The prizes were stuffed Minion dolls, stuffed unicorns, and teddy bears and one vendor had some fun looking stuffed chili peppers, stuffed tomatoes, and stuffed emoji pillows and cubes. Something fun for everyone!!
Lots of entertainment and competitions too from 4H, to flower shows, to build a scarecrow, and lots more. You really could stay busy all day long. The fair is so much fun and it has great people watching too. It was a super-hot day so after a couple of hours we were ready to head home.
The fair was everything I hoped for and more. There were so many things to see and do, my head was spinning by the time we left. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of magic, this is the perfect dress to wear. With its enchanting print, you’ll feel like a real-life fairy-tale character come to life. I highly recommend visiting your local county fair this summer. Hope you all enjoyed seeing our day at the county fair!!
