This was a quick after-work before-SausageFest visit for me.

My goal was to finally sample the Bison egg rolls. They were delicious and made to order. The Red Frazier truck is across from Pioneer Village. I wish I hadn't waited so long to try them. I see another order in my future.

I was pretty confident that I knew everything about Pioneer Village. I was wrong. 

I stopped to chat with Ellsworth Christmas and he was on his way to the Smoke House.

Wait. What? 

I've walked by it hundreds of times. I guess I was always too focused on the summer kitchen. 

Ellsworth was kind enough to open the door and let me catch a scent of the ham he is smoking.

You all know how I love a good tractor parade!

After my preachy post the other day about not letting the rain stop you, I was caught without my umbrella. I still had a blast!

Nora Spitznogle can still recite the 4-H pledge by heart and is an unabashed Indiana State Fair geek. She hasn't missed a single day of the Fair in over a decade and the stack of ribbons from entering baking competitions and ugly lamp contests in the Open Show are among her prized possessions.
