Jessy and Jiang take in the joys of the traditional county fair

Flying High

I went to the Gwinett County Fair with my host mom, my roommate (Jessy, from Egypt) and two more exchange students. I had an amazing day. The place was huge and full of things to do or see. It was a mix between vendor booths, an animal fair, and a fun fair.

The booths were run by different groups, like churches, political parties, and businesses selling honey, mobile phone plans, make up, etc. At the animal area, there was an exhibition of farm animals. The fun fair area was the best part of all of these, full of things to do like little roller coasters and spinning rides. I liked it very much!
