Friends in and soon-to-be visitors to the DC area: this Sunday, September 24, is the 8th Annual DC State Fair. It promises to be a wonderful, festive afternoon. In addition to the myriad food/drink/arts/crafts vendors, eating and dancing contests, and pet parade, there will be a number of awards given to the best agricultural, artistic, and artisanal talent in the District. I will be judging Pickles and hope to see some familiar faces in the crowd.
The weather is forecasted to be beautiful so before the rains return and cool weather causes us all to pack our shorts and sundresses away until next year, head to Waterfront Station in SW DC on Sunday (the fair runs from 11am - 8pm) to enjoy a terrific day.
