Fairs, Flags and Food = Good Times
I'm sure this might sound sacrilegious, but we ate dinner at home BEFORE going to the fair. Call me cheap. But honestly... we went to the fair on Free Children day, and it still cost us $23 just to park and walk thru the entrance. The food was incredibly expensive. Those Australian Battered Potatoes below? $12 for a small tub. $9+ for a hamburger. The corndogs were relatively cheap, but the kids don't like corndogs :-(. We did end up buying a huge plate of curly fries with ranch sauce + a soda to share. Even that was $8. Geesh. Were fairs always this expensive??? Ok, I'm done being wordy and pontificating on the ridiculous price of family entertainment ...
