WAYNE CO.—Here are the sights of the social event of the year in Fairfield, the Fall Fun Fest, from the first couple of nights (Thursday and Friday, September 15 and 16).
Here's what you see when you arrive in town on Highway 15 from the east. Always a welcome sight when I was a kid or home on vacation....
Here's a big draw at the FFF...the lodge's grilled stuff is to die for.
Of course everyone at the fest must make a stop at the many tents....I remember in 1973 they had a "moon rock" on display. Little did we know...
Local businesses have their stuff on display...
....and local politicians man their stations, encouraging voters.
At times, you really do have to push your way through the crowds.
They always have someone interesting in the dunking booth. This time it was Charlie McMeen, Fairfield city cop. At the far right is sheriff Mike Everett (former city cop), preparing to dunk McMeen.
The sheriff scored, dunking McMeen; he declared that a dollar well-spent.
There was entertainment in the north tent, this time the Zumba girls doing a demonstration of their workout.
And they had a small following doing their own Zumba on the floor in front of the stage.
Stan Garner, who helps organize entertainment for the event and operates lights and sound, is shown at left.
Back out into the crowd....let's go look at the rides....
They always have good midway rides at the Fun Fest.
There are rides for little kids and rides for big kids (as shown), and all are equally popular.
Some jokers were throwing beads down onto the ride crowds. Actually, I think that might be my cousin....his gym is located right next door here.
And then there is the entertainment. This was Thursday's offering; all entertainment is held in "Bathroom Park" (mayor Mickey Borah's idea to put big brick restrooms next to the parking lot at the bank. Don't ask me; I didn't nickname em that).
The is Band 222. Don't know what they're named after; maybe that TV show in the 70s. Next coupla pics are they.
222 was the Friday night entertainment offering. They had people on their feet, dancin.
The Beasley Band finished Friday night's line-up....they were fairly rockin, as a good Friday night band should be.
And that concludes our first two nights of the Fall Fun Fest....we have more from today, everything from the opening events this morning up through ARF's Outrageous Dog Contest Saturday....keep checking back!
