The New York State Fair is for people of all ages. Young people especially know how to enjoy it. I mean, look at the optimism on this boy’s face when presented with a hundred bottles and not one of them has had a ring successfully thrown on to.
The Talent Showcase stage features young people singing and dancing of ages up to eighteen. I was floored by the voice of this girl singing Thoroughly Modern Millie. She gave it her all on the song’s final note.
The Dairy Cattle Barn is one of my favorite places to look for young people as they wait with their Dairy cows to show in one of the many classes during the twelve days of the Fair.
My very favorite young people at the Fair work in the hundreds of food vendor booths found outside or in a few of the buildings. Especially my favorite sweet treat from Grandma’s Kitchen inside the International Building: Red Raspberry Pie a la mode and served with a smile.
Before the Fair started I was inspired by fellow blogger YesBut’s Street Portraits and was determined to do some. People are more relaxed at the Fair and having fun. The above photo is one as is the man with the butterfly hat. I will continue to look for interesting people who will agree to letting me photograph them.
