Last Friday we cycled to the State Fair and parked our bikes in the free Pedal N Park, which was operated by three friendly volunteers. Since we started late, we immediately went to the Monroe Concession stand, where I ordered the best breaded tenderloin ever!
Fortunately, we found a table with shade. The sky was clear, and the sun was hot. It took some time to eat the tenderloin, but I managed to devour the entire thing.
Then we meandered around the fairgrounds, and we saw an entertaining K9 Crew Trick Dog Show. Next was Pioneer Village, where we bought some Indiana-shaped wood-carved boxes for Christmas gifts. In the Horticulture building we saw the blue ribbon winners in the flower, vegetable, Christmas tree, and Bonsai categories. I liked one of the blue ribbon zinnias, and created this cartoon-style look from the photo I took:
