The famous Ohio State Fair is the best state fair, don't miss it or even be late. It's dollars to donuts that the Ohio State Fair is the best state fair in our State! or so goes my version of the opening song to the "State Fair" musical. Think of all the lights, the colors, the Midway, the livestock, the foods, and much more that you can photograph! We will meet at the Kroger's Parking Lot in Mason near Kings Island in order to carpool to the Fair.
Cost: If you car pool the recommended donation to the driver is $30 for 2 riders and $20 for 3 riders, to cover mileage and parking. Let me know in the Comments if you can be a driver.
Get your ticket in advance at Krogers or AAA and save $4 off the price (we'll be a Krogers right?). Prices are $10 for adults, $8 for Seniors 60+, and $6 if bought in advance. Parking is $5.

I will have a color map of the Fair grounds for those who are going; and those traveling in the same car will exchange cell phone numbers and agreements on where to meet for the return home. Once we get there it would do well to travel together in smaller groups based on interest.
