This past weekend, Jon and I went to the State Fair of Louisiana. It was Jon’s first time going to the state fair, so I was excited that we would get to experience it together. While I don’t like to ride too many rides because I get awful headaches when I’m hung upside down and spun around too fast, I still enjoy going to the fair.
The first thing we did was eat because neither of us had eaten breakfast, and we were starved. He enjoyed a chili cheese dog, and I munched down on some ribbon chips. I love me some ribbon chips. I put a bunch of seasoning salt on it to make it more yummy.
Next, we enjoyed a few fair rides and other fun things. We did the bumper cars, rode the ferris wheel, rode in a not scary haunted tunnel ride thing, and visited the petting zoo.
I also got to check something off of my bucket list. We rode in a helicopter! I know it’s weird that I don’t want to ride rides, but I’m willing to ride in a helicopter, but this was a prime opportunity to check something off my bucket list, and I had to jump at the chance. It was only a 2-minute fly, but it was so neat to see Shreveport and the fair from that point of view. It was Jon’s first time flying ever, so it’s awesome that his first time flying was in a helicopter.
Before we left the fair, we had to get a funnel cake! We decided on a red velvet one with powdered sugar and cream cheese. It was so delish.
Have you ever been to the fair? What’s your favorite thing to do at the fair?
