Yesterday, The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird and I took a field trip to the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington. Admission was $30 a head or FREE if you donated an old cell phone. So guess who asked around and found 2 old cell phones so they could get in to the fair for free?
There was a ton of stuff to see, including live demonstrations from the Fort Nisqually History Museum. Oy! I wonder if wearing a hoop skirt hurts.
They had yurts. I’m not sure how much they cost, but they are actually pretty roomy inside. This one even had a little wood stove/heater and a bed. Pretty neat-o if you ask me.
Once inside the pavilion, there were a ton of farm animals to see. Cows, goats, alpacas, lambs, and pretty little piggies too.
They even had a few chickens on display. This little girl was telling me a story about roosters. It was very exciting. It was great to see so many families with young children at the fair. In my opinion, although there were fewer farm animals than the Big Puyallup Fair in the fall, this fair was much better. Very low key, no rides or carnival games, but loads and loads of workshops, demonstrations and it just had a really wholesome feel about it. This was my first time at a Mother Earth News Fair, and I loved it.
Oh, and guess what? Some man was giving away FREE bantam chickens. Who could say no to FREE chickens? Not us! Wahoo! I’m excited to see how tiny their eggs are. We’ll keep you posted.
Peace Out Girl Scouts,
