One of the best things about summer in the Midwest is going to a County Fair. It's a country extravaganza with rodeos, carnival rides and good music. We attended the Madison County Fair in Nebraska the other weekend and it was just a perfect date weekend. We love going to rodeos and this was one of the best ones we've seen together. Steer wrestling is by far my favorite event but all the events are fun to watch. You just feel "American" going to a rodeo. You know?
The fair was full of carnival games and rides as well as 4H exhibits. We enjoyed seeing the 4h students hard work and ribbon winning projects. I think it is great you can get a ribbon for the best grown potato or best looking jar of hand cut flowers.
We also went to a country concert and watched Brett Eldridge and Billy Currington. It was a great show and even though we had seats in the grandstands with the rest of the lazy people (who wants to stand in general admission right next to the stage? Jk) I still found moments to sway my hips a little to the best and sing along before being asked to sit back down.
There is a fair in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa or Minnesota almost every weekend. So if you are ever looking for some healthy entertainment check one out the next time you visit! I have to recommend Nebraska ones though, they know how to rodeo!
