Road trippin': Indiana State Fair

The change from summer to fall is bridged with an annual tradition, the Indiana State Fair. Sure you can find the usual, lots of animals, deep fried everything, rides that are guaranteed to make you lose whatever fried concoction you decided to ingest. But every year I always find something special that makes it worth coming back year after year.

One of my favorite parts was a special exhibit all about the history of animation. A good part of the stuff on display was Disney related including a ton of stuff on loan from the Walt Disney Family Museum. If you know me, you know I was on cloud 9.
