If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I’ve got a soft spot for the Puyallup Fair (in spite of its overpriced food). Well today I learned that the Puyallup Fair is now THE largest fair in the State of Washington.
And it will be changing its name officially in 2013 to the Washington State Fair. (Source: The News Tribune)
Maybe that’s good, but for some reason, I’m sad. (I get sentimental about the strangest things.) I’m glad to hear they’ll at least be keeping the tagline “Do the Puyallup” because I love singing that “you can do it at a trot, you can do it a gallup song.”
If you’ve not gone yet, the Fair runs through this Sunday, September 23rd. I’ve written a number of posts about the Fair you might want to read if you’re planning a trip (and do read the comments on these as there are some smart cookies out there!)
