The Smell of Cotton Candy is in the Air: Dixie Classic Fair is in town

The sweet smell of kettle corn and cotton candy is in the air. It's time for the Dixie Classic Fair!  My kids especially love the petting farm and the fluffy-footed chickens, the piglet races and, of course, the rides. I am intrigued by the idea of giant turkey legs and deep fried Oreos/Snickers/Twinkies/butter(?) but all I can ever bring myself to eat is the funnel cake. I was happy to see healthier choices, like the roasted corn, grilled veggies with noodles and the chocolate-dipped frozen banana, but it's hard to talk a five-year-old into healthy options when there is a giant corn dog booth next door.

This week's local Etsy is all about the fair! I will be wearing my fun pink cotton candy earrings by artist Tiffany O'Brien (she also makes them in blue). I acquired mine at this year's West End ARTSfest, but you can get yours by visiting her Etsy store: Freaks, Geeks & Beauties.

See you at the fair, y'all!
