The Northwest Washington Fair Begins!

I'll remember the first day of the fair as HOT. With temperatures reaching 93 degrees in the afternoon, everyone was just plain hot. You could see it in the faces of the little children; you could see it in the tired shuffle of the senior citizens that thronged the Fair.

Even with the heat, there was excitement in the air! The Fair looked as sparkling clean and bright as always. The new horse barn opened, providing a beautiful new venue for riders across the county and state. For some of us vendors in the Expo Building, the excitement centered around the remodeled and expanded washrooms :) The Demolition Derby was anticipated by many, and I heard that the singing of our National Anthem to open the Fair was performed beautifully by Laurel Bareman, our Whatcom County Dairy Ambassador.

Day 1 is behind us; the rest of the week lies ahead. Though the number of fairgoers seemed a little low yesterday, I am sure that cooler weather will bring more visitors later in the week. I am excited to be meeting new clients and talking to clients I've done work for in the past; all part of my continuing effort to fulfill
the window covering needs of Whatcom County and beyond with gorgeous, practical and energy-saving window fashions.
