…. Elkhart style. The weather forecast called for a chance of rain, so we chanced it. And were rewarded with a massive downpour. It didn’t take long for deep puddles to form around our feet, and a move from under the awnings was rewarded with a cold shower. Nevertheless, we all had a great time and were pleased to be able to gather on the eve of our departure.
Tomorrow we all head for different and new destinations. Travel safely, everyone, and see you at the next event… whatever and wherever that may be.
The Elkhart County Fair is the second largest county fair in the U.S. Parking is in a field with golf carts standing by to take you to the Fair gates. Inside is a trolley which you can ride to the many areas – vender buildings, exhibit buildings, carnival rides, animals and, of course, interesting fair food. There are also 275 50-amp full rv hookups & an additional 72 30-amp ones. I believe they were all filled for the Fair!
Because of the inclement weather, some decided not to visit the fair. However, the Phillips, Smiths and others did attend the Fair and had a great time even though during the course of the day the tornado sirens sounded and everyone was directed to shelters! After the “all clear” the Fair activities resumed albeit a bit rainy. The people were exceptionally friendly & welcoming. Phillips said, “We’d go again but would wish for better weather!”
