Bloomsburg Fair – They Really Have This Stuff

I’d never been to a county fair/agricultural fair like this before. You’ve seen it on tv, but seriously folks, this stuff really happens. People grow fruits and vegetables and animals and stuff, and they compete. And you get blue ribbons and such. It’s crazy, yet adorable.

Award winning bell peppers. Award winning watermelon! But to me, how would you know if it’s tasty on the inside? Just because it’s pretty on the outside doesn’t mean shit. It could be a terrible watermelon.

Prize winning beets and brussel sprouts. I had no idea this is how brussel sprouts grew. Don’t they look like… giant buds?

All kinds of apples.

And to top off the freakshow, the award winning giant pumpkins. These weren’t the winner. But they were huge, and their poundage was written on them.This is the one that one. 1105 lbs of pure unbridled freak gourd. Just imagining the logistics of transporting that pumpkin from patch to the fairgrounds makes my head hurt. There were also baking contests too. This one was for angel food cake, which is a cake I’m very partial to. There were also pie and chocolate categories as well. And oh yes, there were cows, and sheep, and goats, and chickens, and rabbits!
