What is your favorite part of the fair? I like watching the rodeo every night. The midway is a lot of fun too. Watching the kids with their livestock getting ready for the judging brings back great memories. And, let’s not forget the scrumptious food.

The Four States Fair and Rodeo is approximately three weeks away. It runs from Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 18 in Texarkana, Ark. My family is so excited to see which rides are going to be on the midway. I have taken my stepson to the fair since he was 4 years old. He started out on the kiddie rides and now he rides the big ones like the "Freak Out."

This was last year's midway:

My riding buddy is my stepson Ethan. He is eager to hop on most of the attractions while others take a little more prodding. He has yet to go on the "Zipper" with me though, which leaves me to stand around and beg someone to ride with me and I feel a little creepy. You must have two people to ride the "Zipper" so if you see a lady lurking around, offer to go on the ride with me please.

Are you a rodeo fan? Barrel racing, bronc riding, team roping or bull riding, they are all fun to me.
