What? The wind is poopy? Aw, c’mon. Boo-de-boo-hoo.
Go to the Fair. Seriously, windsurfing and whitewater rafting and fishing and hiking and mountain biking and wine tasting and … well, that’s not all that makes Hood River County great.
There’s the County Fair. Seriously, those of us who live here and consider ourselves somewhat hip also consider the Fair to be the premier event of the summer. It’s ground zero for tapping reality. Not virtual reality. Not some CGI construct flashed on an iPod or Pad or Puddle.
Real reality. Stuff, and the people who make or grow it. Farm, food, family.
It’s kids, and animals, and a food court to die for. That’s because, IOHOP, we’ve got such a strong Hispanic influence in Hood River County. More than 25 percent of our residents claim Latino roots. And they love the fair.
So, savvy food booth types know that those visitors — along with we Anglo types who love Mexican-style munchies — will come hungry for tacos and burritos and churros and … oh, it goes on. Just belly up, peoples.
What else is on tap? Just pop on over to the Fair web site, for a full schedule and admission pricing. Gates open at noon today (Wednesday, July 25). See you there.
