The smell of the fair is in the air with the aromas of Funnel Cakes, Fried Twinkies & Baaaaaaaaaaaaacon!  For all you chocolate lovers- you can have chocolate covered anything, including Bacon!  This year dig your teeth into Chicken Charlies Krispy Kreme ice cream chicken sandwich,  It is cold, soft hard, crunchy, sweet – are you kidding me? Wow, if anyone has tried it please let me know.  Eat at your own risk & bring some Tums just in case.

50 Shades of Rides –buckle up and enjoy the rides.  From flips, twirls, dips & wheels,  my favorite is the Grand Wheel and an added bonus it has grand beach views.  Fun it up- from the coaster to ferris wheel you can be a kid again.  It’s fun for all ages.
