It's fair time! You can always count on three things over the Summer, floating the river, rodeos, and the county fair. I grew up in Texas going to the fair but I think living in a smaller city you get something more out of it

Canyon County Fair kicks off their fair this Thursday and runs through the weekend. That means elephant ears, Idaho ice cream potatoes, and the corn on the cob eating contest. Yes, that's a real thing.

Pay no attention to the that animal above. Totally harmless! Just DON'T feed Tequila. You can however grab this COUPON for free admission today from noon to 3 p.m. thanks to the Idaho Tribune coupon. Click on the link/admission/Idaho Press Coupon.

I remember my first fair with a live performance from Snoop Dog that was definitely "G". No, don't jog your memory wondering when you missed Snoop at the local fair because this was back in my Texas days growing up. I remember spending a ton of my part time dollars on those stupid rings! Did you play the basketball game for stuffed animals? I also thought I'd find the girl of my dreams at the fair. None of any of those happened except losing all my money.

That brings us to this year's Canyon County Fair. The same games, rides and different performers continues to slam the fair each year. No matter what - we try to win that damn goldfish!

Side note: I won a goldfish here one year and got stuck with it for almost 3 years! Long story for another time.
