A peek inside the Carp Fair

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Ottawa for kids|Easy ways to make kids happy|Ottawa

Did you know that the Carp Fair is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year? How many smiling faces, candy apples, tractor pulls, and giant pumpkins do you think there may have been during the past 150 years? I can’t even begin to figure it out. But I will say this, we couldn’t have chosen a nicer day to check out the Carp Fair. This was our day yesterday:

Ferris wheels make me happy. #carpfair

@mrmissfish won this for me! #carpfair

Skee ball rocks! #carpfair

My dream car is at the #carpfair!

Gorgeous horses #carpfair

Super dogs at #carpfair #latergram

Señor Corn Dog says SI!

We are trying to decide if we want to go check it out this afternoon…looking at your photos is making me lean towards yes! Great weather again, too.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
