Arlington County Fair by day

Today was a beautiful day for the Arlington County Fair, hosted at the corner near Route 50 and Glebe road south of Clarendon. I was one of the lucky winners of the fair's twitter contest, scoring a shirt and tickets for three rides for free.

There are basically two parts to the fair: the indoor array of vendors/shops and the outdoor rides, food and carnival games. I was impressed with how many different rides were available, from the traditional Ferris wheel to the Super Shot vertical drop.

I got my fill of cotton candy, chocolate shakes and "winning" tiny stuffed animals today. I'm looking forward to going back in the evening to get some night time pictures, which would be more appropriate for this blog.
