A giant white dress

Yes! Children AND adults can sew up a giant white dress, if they want.

But if that’s not your deal, look to the far wall, where you can (apparently) check out the BEST NEBRASKA WINES, which sounds weird enough that it’s probably a real thing.

Neither dresses nor wine your thing? Off to the right, then, is an accordionist/comedian you could check out. I make a mistake of sitting down in the front row after he’d started his show – I must have violated some some provision of the of Accordionist Audience Code of Ethics, which just goes to show the hidden dangers of traveling in foreign places like Nebraska – and he heckled me relentlessly. At one point, when some old dude came down to take a picture, he stopped playing, and said as he gestured to my camera, “Sir – no photos. She’s here from Jimmy Fallon and won’t let anyone else photograph me.” It was SO FUNNY. To the accordionist.

All this to say the state fair had plenty of stuff to look at.

  1. Love it when you go off on a wordy ramble!!


  2. So, the wife drags the husband there, he can drink while she sews!


  3. If I’m ever in Nebraska I will know what not to do. Thanks for the FYI. Good photography and advice all on one site ! Doesn’t get any better than that.

    Cool! That’s my dress! Nice photo


    • NO kidding?! The dress was so pretty – I spent a long time looking at it. And I was drawn to it because of the way it looked in the light. (We were passing through Nebraska last year and on a whim went to the state fair – I can’t recall when I’ve had as much fun as on that day. You Nebraskans know how to do a state fair, that’s for sure!)
