strawberry day virgins

collectively russ and i have lived in Utah for 28 years. staggering i know. as far as utah county based festivals go we have stuck to our the Provo/Orem boundaries.
Orem SummerFest, heck yes, Provo Freedom Festival, every gosh darn year,
but Strawberry Days... not until this week.

thankfully we had some OPG's to show us the ropes...

RING O' FIRE.
try to give yourself at least 20 minutes to digest your large corn-dog to go on this one.





WHEEL O' FERRIS

"if you rock the bucket one more time" the Native-American operator will kick you off.



EL RODEO (if PETA could see us now)
the main differences between men and women can be determined by watching their faces while a poor baby cow gets roped by the neck and pinned to the ground for sport.
wild cow milking is HIGH-LARIOUS.





Mrs. Potato-Head Nose, and Count Dracula (seriously. look at those incisors!)
hereby deem Strawberry Days:
"Utah's Most W.T. Festival"

I went last night too! So much fun huh? I couldn't watch very much of the baby cow roping part though, it really is sad. I can't get enough of those strawberries and cream!

Please say that you got to see a demolition derby!? I hadn't ever heard or seen one until I moved to TN but it's hilarious! It's a bunch of random people that get old junky cars and paint them and stuff and then when the whistle blows they just start ramming each other. It's like real bumper cars! The winner is the car that can last the longest!!

If you liked Strawberry Days then I bet you would love Peach Days in Brigham City. I've never been but hear its one for the books!
