Do the Puyallup Fair

The Puyallup (pyoo-OWL-up) Fair is Washington's state fair, held in early September. (For baby animal enthusiasts, there's also the lamb-and-chick-filled Spring Fair in April.) Sure, there are all the usual state-fair staples: carnival rides, a midway, corn dogs and cotton candy. But the unique, bizarre displays are really what I love best, like these elaborate artistic arrangements of produce, preserves, dairy, wool, and eggs. Or the display hall where collectors can show off their accumulations of vintage sewing machines, salt-and-pepper shakers, or dolphin-themed memorabilia. Or the costumed cat contest. If you go — and you should — save room for one of the famous Fisher's fair scones, split and generously spread with strawberry jam, then handed to you piping-hot in a paper sack.
