The State Fair had more than 900,000 people attend this year, and I was one of them--three times!
After five hours at the Fair I was getting pooped. I was ready to take the train. I shelled out $1 per kid and sat back to enjoy a ride around the entire fair doing nothing, but sitting back and watching all the sights (some fun, some disturbing).
Wouldn't you know it? We had been on the train ust long enough for me to pay, which was about 30 seconds. We had only gone a few feet, but the train was moving fast when I heard Boone say, "Oh, I lost my shoe!"
Great! Didn't really want to go out and buy another pair of shoes. So I had to jump off the train, leaving the kids with my sister, run back and try and find his shoe, which I did, but of course the train was long gone.
