#14 Attend my 1st Country Fair (OCF) –
I was born in Portland, but grew up in Eugene but either way I am a true Oregonian who had never been to the famous annual Country Fair. Hundreds of people from all over the world head to Veneta for this weekend event every July. So how have I never been to this event that happens every year in my own town? Well as a kid my parents never took me and in college, I just never had the time. My husband actually grew up going to it as one of his best friend’s family runs a burrito both there and has for several decades now, so he has actually spent the whole weekend working there when he was in high school. With the exception of the heat and smell, I loved it! It was like a fairytale and so unique. Around every corner there was just so much to take in. I was amazed at how much work goes into this 3day event and how many people live for it. While it may not depict my daily lifestyle, there are so many things to love about the uniqueness of it all, and the colors… so pretty! I even managed to sport my hippie tie dye Oregon shirt!
We also got to see some friends that we don’t see enough, and Shaun was even put to work like old times in their burrito stand! Overall, it was a great day & I’m glad I got to experience it!
