We had fun at the farm equipment display.
We enjoyed the rabbits and chickens, the goats, sheep and pigs. Funny, we saw lots of dairy cows, of course, but I have no photo of them :(
We even spent time with the reptile man, although Jill and I had to work hard not to show our phobia fear. I passed mine on to her, but we're trying not to afflict the next generation.
Of course the kids had to go on some carnival rides.
Our dinner out was fair food, not our most nutritious meal, but tasty. Funny how you can spend as much on this stuff as on a nice meal in a good restaurant.
Then we witnessed the "highlight" of the Tillamook County Fair, the famous Pig n' Ford Races. Photos just don't do this event justice, but let me try to explain. There is some tradition about taking the pigs to market in the old Model T Ford. Anyway, Model T engines are mounted on open wheel chassis. The engines have to be cranked to start, and they don't idle. The drivers each have to grab a piglet from a pen, crank their car, drive it around the race track, trade for another pig, and repeat two more times. We were assured no pigs were injured, but I'm sure some emotional trauma was experienced. There were two heats, a total of ten racers. The winners go on to the gold medal round. Oops, too much Olympics, but you know what I mean. It was all great fun.
And we had time to go back to the beach for a fire and s'mores.
