🎵 Are you going to Maryland Fair? 🎵 Fleeeeces, sheep, equipment and yarn! 🎵

I seem to be the only one amused by this...I can’t get it out of my head. 

🎵 Remember me to volunteers there...
🎵 They are all heros of mine!

maybe by next year (the 50th Anniversary of Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!!!) I can get others into this? What rhymes with "cambric shirt (in the deep forest green)"?

Thoughts/hints for the weekend:

Check out the fair schedule and other info ahead of time. This festival is overwhelmingly wonderful. Make a plan! Do buy your tickets ahead of time

Do go visit sheep! walk the barns, watch a sheep show, see the breeds display...they are all around!

Wear waterproof shoes/raincoat...it sounds like it's going to be wet

Visit the Chesapeake Fibershed table in the new Exhibition Hall Annex

Go see the sheep to shawl competition!

Check out the fleece show and sale (Solitude Wool is a sponsor 😁)

Watch the sheep shearing demonstration (outside East lawn of the Main Exhibition Hall, all weekend)
