A fair is a veritable smorgasboard, orgasboard.....

I spent a wonderful evening at the New Mexico state fair! And like my title suggests - a fair is full of wonderful food and this fair was definitely rich in tasty treats! I ate my way through the many stalls - and loved every minute of it!

The green chili stew with Indian Fry bread was definitely my favorite! It was SPICY!! So good!


I also got a "Pueblo Pie" - cherry - that was also delicious...


And what fair is complete without a fried twinkie :)



There was also a million things to see and do. I caught a tiger show - with some gorgesous white and orange tigers. They look just like big kitties and i wanted to hug them!



I was walking around too long before making my way over the animal stands. By the time I got over there - the only thing left open was one small area with some chickens and these cute little piggies....



There was also many art and craft displays - and of course I had to go look at the knitting that won. Here's a shot of a sweater that won first place...



There was an Indian village set up there also - there was traditional Native American dancing and food (that's where I got the green chili stew) and crafts and lots of turquoise jewelry.



I really enjoyed the dancing and music. The customs were amazing....






Overall - it was a great night! I did end up with blisters on my feet though! I wore the only shoes I had with me and unfortunately they weren't the most sensible shoes around - but it was worth it.

I ADORE the state fair here! Every year I drag Cody around to all the buildings and villages. And we have to get our traditional Navajo taco and fried twinkie. Then we take a turkey leg home for later. Mmmm can't wait till Monday when we're going!

A fried Twinkie, eh? It looks good. My favorites at the fair are fried dough and roasted corn. I could eat them all day. Good thing the fair only comes once a year and is an hour away. LOL

Glad to see you're enjoying your time away!
