Hey~~you look familiar~~haven't we seen you before?
Miss Teen Queen candidates help the auctioneer with a baked goods raffle. "Who will give $10? Do I hear $15?"
Your photographer becomes entranced with little girl who is not paying attention to the baked good auction.
OK, she's only eating a cookie. Not any of those "elephant ears" common in Midwestern fairs (fried dough sprinkled with sugar, for you uninitiated fair-goers)
Thanks for visiting the fair! C’mon back again next summer!
