Hey, next week is the start of the Fair. Starting Friday, it's non-stop fun and food and rides and concerts for a whole two weeks / three weekends. And I'll be there right in the middle of it. I will not be standing in the hours-long line at the fried twinkie booth. But I'll be working our little artists shop in the grandstand - selling soap and stuff.

Washington. The Fair continually ranks in the top ten largest fairs in
There is so much to do, I can't possibly explain it all -
rides, food, animals, food, exhibits, elephant ears, shopping, fried food, concerts, Krusty Pups. More info on it all
the Fair website.
Held at the Fair & Events Center in downtown Puyallup. I guess they re-named this too, but it's the same Puyallup Fairgrounds that it's always been.

Soapworks Studio is located in the Artists in Action building, on the ground floor of the Grandstand, near the Fischer Scone booth. We're like a little store within the fair, with a central cashier for all of us. Non-stop artist demos too.
