I’m not sure I ever thought I would be a state fair kind of girl, but it’s official. I love the state fair.
This is the fourth year I’ve gone to the Michigan State Fair at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. It’s a giant facility that allows the fair to truly shine with activities inside and out.
There are games, rides, booths for shopping local goods, giant pumpkins, a butter cow, a circus, monster trucks, fried foods and cold drinks, and every single category of farm animal you can think of. It is a stereotypical state fair and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s quite beautiful too with the giant ferris wheel against the sky, all the colors and lights on the signs for rides. I just feel good when I’m there, walking around with no real purpose, even if it is Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end to summer.
I like to win a stuffed animal to match my outfit. There weren’t a whole lot of yellow options save for a giant Minion and a giant Pikachu, both of which I wanted, but let’s just say it turns out I can’t really throw. Please, save your shock for another time 😉
I pretty much love this little unicorn … and our shoes matched so I call that a win.
But not as big of a win as spending the afternoon at the state fair with my parents!
And then I played quick change artist to head to dinner at Prime + Proper (where else???) It was the perfect summer day!
