Announcement: I have two tickets to give away for the California State Fair! They are good for any age person and any date between July 12-28.
How do you coax me to mail YOU these two tickets? Easy. Use the comments section to tell me about your favorite memory of the fair and I will enter you into a drawing. No actual coaxing involved, just a few minutes’ thinking and writing about your memories. Out of towners who cannot attend the CA state fair, feel free to participate as well–the more stories, the merrier–but please indicate if you do not wish to be included in the drawing.
Winner will be announced on July 10.
Your story doesn’t have to be about the California State Fair–it can be about any state or county fair you’ve enjoyed. Or a festival celebrating Almonds, Garlic, Jumping Frogs or any place where it’s likely that you can eat a turkey leg as big as Henry VIII or pay $5 for your child to be encased in a rusty cage that goes round and round.
If you happen to share a California State Fair story and you have a photo to go along with it, consider also posting to www.bigfun.org/memories for a chance to be featured on a billboard or commercial.
Am I getting paid to run this giveaway? Nope, a marketing guy offered me the tickets, along with two for myself, and I agreed to write a blog post about my experience at the fair. So depending on how my visit goes–I’m planning to take my 3-year-old on a late afternoon/evening, so I can at least get some paid work done that day–the state fair may or may not get a good return on its investment. My goal is to make sure YOU get some valuable information about what to see and do, and hopefully, a few laughs as well.
Now, send me your stories!
