The Vintage Carousel at the Washington State Fair

fairThe Washington State Fair’s 1917 Merry Go Round is the oldest active carnival ride at the Fair, operating there since 1923. I learned that seniors, 62+, qualify to ride for free! No, I don’t qualify.

The fair had a glorious last day of it’s run with the weather sunny and in the mid-70s. It was packed!

Here are a couple of photos of the merry go round, as well as a couple of other shots. Apparently I can’t stay out of the floral building!

Variations on the Floral/Grange Building at the Washington State Fair


Four Apples – Prizma

One of my favorite buildings at the Washington State Fair is the Floral/Grange Building and of course while dear husband and I were enjoying the fair I took a bunch of photos there. I thought this time I would try editing each of the photos with a different photo app. The four apples above were made with the Prisma App (a new one for me)
