Fall is pretty much here and that means the return of the Tri State Fair and Rodeo!  This means deep fried goodness, exciting fun rides, the best exhibits from around the Panhandle and of course rodeo fun!

Anytime September hits, I start getting super excited because the weather cools down and the fair!  My favorite thing is to walk through all the exhibits while munching on a turkey leg or corn dog.  Then you have to wash it all down with either a lemonade or old fashion soda.  Yummy!

Here is a list of events for this years week of fun!
