2005 Illinois State Fair photos

2005 Illinois State Fair photos

These guys sounded great.
Hope they return.

Somewhere I have a picture of the butter cow...

These ladies were enjoying the fair.

Don't try this at home.

I really think that the major league baseball teams in Illinois are missing a fantastic public relations opportunity at the Illlinois State Fair. Imagine if the Chicago Cubs and White Sox had booths with retired players coaching kids (and adults) with their baseball skills. They could set up a batting cage and an autograph booth and perhaps even offer ticket sales there.
Central and Southern Illinois has a mix of fans of the out of state team St. Louis Cardinals. Offering state fair attendees a chance to meet and be coached by former Cubs and White Sox stars might encourage kids to follow an in-state team.
As it was, this poster was the only thing I saw that represented the Chicago Cubs at the Illinois State Fair. Sadly, this poster was not even available for sale. I'm told that they could've sold a lot had it been available for sale.

More proof that Abe wasn't Amish...

A real slice of pizza or pizza on a stick. Which would you choose?

I have more photos to share. Keep checking back for more photos.
