Animal Attractions

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 11.01.16 AM

When the Louisiana State Fair approaches, you can almost feel the excitement in the air.
The season is changing, night comes earlier. The thought of an evening stroll through the arcades and attractions with a nip of something warm to drink or that oh-so-sinful deep-fried item that you must have – and maybe have even anticipated all year.
Well, it’s that time, so let’s fire up the fall fun and hit the fairgrounds. Sixteen days to get your fill of rides, hanging with friends or perhaps taking your children for the first time and watching their faces as they are enthralled with simply everything. There might even be an engagement proposal in the plans ... Many first dates and memorable moments have occurred. Make your plans. Gather your posse, it’s fair time!
