Sundays in My City: The Puyallup Fair

This weekend, along with hoards of other people, we went to the Puyallup Fair. This fair has been around for eons (ok, not really eons, but decades, anyway) & is held twice a year in spring & in the fall. All the traditional fair type stuff can be found here, gardening, cooking, animals, food & rides. The theme this time was "Free Your Glee." Sorry, I don't get it, is it a reference to the show Glee (I love this show, by the way) & if so, why does this relate to a county fair? Was there a singing contest? I don't know. There were musical performances. Kid Rock was there (he's doing county fairs, now?) & we saw a brief part of some show where the entire group wore jumpsuits. The lead singer made reference to a 70's leisure suit he had in his closet, but from where I was standing he was born in the 70's, if he experienced the 70's at all. If he has a leisure suit in his closet, he must have bought it for the retro appeal !

I'm glad it wasn't called "Free Your Pee". Kid Rock was there? Hmmm. I love the pictures you shared.

I don't get the theme either. Maybe. . .Free your glee would have been better?!
