When living in a city that is far away from…well everything, one must embrace experiences as they come. So this past week saw us go to the Yorkton Exhibition. Walking up to the fair, it reminded me of a scene from a movie … a Reece Weetherspoon romantic comedy I think 😉 ….you know minus cameras and the funny dialogue that happens in a movie.
The sidekick and kid fearlessly conquered ride after ride…
….while my stomach went up to my throat each and every time. I can’t do rides anymore 😦 They make me nauseous beyond belief. It wouldn’t have been pretty.
Though it was small town, the prices were not. That surprised me a lot. Just to get into the park was $40 for the three of us. Parking was $5 – which is what I was expecting. Then for the sidekick and the kid to get a braces so they could do all the rides was $40 each. I really missed my childhood…. heck I missed 5 years ago when it didn’t cost so much. The prices are a bit of a stumbling block for lower income families sadly.
The next day was the Yorkton Parade. Honest truth, I have no idea why there was a parade. Maybe for the exhibition? As entertainment is hard to come by without traveling for hours (LOL), we asked no questions and made our way down for a bit of free fun.
It was a short parade … you can walk the main road in twenty minutes … but it was an enjoyable time out.
A not bad start to the summer. Here’s hoping for a great continuation.
