We Love Fairs! (part 2)

Last week we continued our quest to rock as many County fairs as possible this summer by heading out to Marin for food, fun, and 4th of July festivities. With the exception of a Demolition Derby, this fair had it all: greeeezy yum-yums, super-sweet treats, creaky carnie rides, arts & crafts, airbrushing booths, 4-H competitions, a petting zoo, food competitions, a Scientology "stress reduction station", awesome fireworks, and last-but-absolutely-not-least our favorite hard-rockin', leather halter top wearin', cult rock goddess Joan Jett! (Who, by the way, rocked us so hard we nearly dropped our funnel cakes.) She played alllllll the hits, from "Cherry Bomb" and "Crimson and Clover" to "I Love Rock 'n Roll" and "I Hate Myself For Loving You". Not to mention the theme song to one of our favorite shows ever Freaks and Geeks!
The gianormous ferris wheel.

Animal topiary and carnie rides: 2 of our favorite things!

Donkey ears!
