The Puyallup Fair is the 8th largest fair in the world, and is over a century old, having begun in 1900. It runs for 17 days and attendance always tops 1 million. It's so huge that you can't see it all in one day. It starts off with an old fashioned cattle drive right down the main street of Puyallup, with the cattle being driven to the fairgrounds by cowboys mounted on cowhorses. The cattle don't always go where they're supposed to. Last year, one steer did his imitation of a bull in a china closet by taking a detour through a drug store, with the amiable steer going in one door and startled patrons erupting out the other door.
This year, I tried to talk my sister into going on some rides with me, but she declined. So the only ride I went on was the Giant Slide. That's me on the far left. I screamed all the way down. It was a blast, but climbing the five million steps to the top just about did me in. The stairs are on the right of the slide, behind the orange barrier.
