Hawaii Mom Blog: 50th State Fair




June 10, 2010

50th State Fair

On Memorial Day we went to the 50th State Fair.

We went before 6pm so admission was just $3 for each adult, and since both boys are under 40" tall, they got in free.

The first thing we did when we got there was eat.

DS1 ate a pizza.

DS2 and I shared Fried Saimin.

DH ate a Cheeseburger and DS1's leftover pizza.
There's a lot of tables so people can sit down and eat, but they are sooooo filthy! It was so gross.

Fortunately I always carry lots of sanitizing wipes so I wiped down the table before and after we ate.

After dinner we walked around a bit so the boys could get used to all the sights and sounds.

There was a petting zoo, but we didn't go in it--I think it was $4.00 a person or something like that. I thought that was pretty expensive.
We watched a Pig Race.
And saw Iron Man.
Then the boys went on some rides.

DH took DS2 on the Super Slide (not sure if that's what they call the slide still).
He totally loved it.

DS1 went on the Merry-Go-Round...

and a race car ride.

He kept wanting to go on that fun house attraction, but he was too short.

Maybe next year.

And maybe next year we'll get wristbands since we're hoping the boys will ride more.

I haven't been to the 50th State Fair in years, and it was nice to go back as a family this time!

  1. I tried to post a comment here yesterday, but it did not register.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that when my kids were little, we would always take them to a fair -- 50th State Fair, Farm Fair, Punahou Carnival, etc. What happy memories we have!
