Photos: A Day At the Fair [The New York State Fair]

I’d rather be covering the Alaska State Fair which is this week, but I’m stuck in Upstate New York. So, here are some photos from the New York State Fair. It was Governor’s Day at the fair, and unlike in Alaska where that might mean free hamburgers and salmon, in New York it means protests and Dinosaur BBQ.

This bunny was quite surprised by my camera.

In the butterfly tent this kid was quite popular.

Upstaters will put up with rain for a generic country music show… but to vote? Probably not.

Speaking of voting… Here’s the Green Party’s Howie Hawkins, he’s running for Governor.

Just a little off the top, please.

It’s not a fair without a cow.


Ok, now it's time to stop taking photos.

    I’ve never been to New York’s state fair. Now that I’ve seen your photos, I can avoid it forever! The rooster photos were great, no joke.

    What happened? Did the chicken threaten to burn you with the fire on her head?;) This is the closest I have been to a fair in over 40 years and it don’t look like much has changed in that time. It is not true that all farmers/ex-farmers go to fairs all the time. Does bring back memories,though. Thank uou.
