...........it must be the Iowa State Fair!

It's been about 25 years since I went to it. But I've always wanted to go at sunset and just shoot the midway. So last night, I decided it was time I did just that. The weather was perfect (80°F when I got there, with a nice breeze). As the sun went down, I made my way off the Grand Concourse and to the midway.

OK, so I can't bring you the smells and the sounds. You'll have to supply your own smell of corn dogs and beer and integrate that with the sounds of motor whirring, carnies hawking and kids screaming.
 
LOVE the neon, great photos. Especially like the "UFO", that's cool. Looks like fun, haven't been to anything like this in ages.

Now you might have a photo from the Iowa State Fair that you could enter into the contest at the Iowa State Fair.

BTW, Rodgers & Hammerstiens' State Fair is based on the Iowa fair.

Yes, I was. But The Dumpster was long gone by the time I arrived. He must fear me.
