World's Fair

I come from a small town where the fair is a pretty big deal. I have vivid memories of hanging out at the fair in the summers of all middle school and high school.
Every. Day.
For a week.
No, I have no idea why. It is just what you did there.

As fun as modern day fairs are with their chocolate-covered bacon and scary encounters with carnival workers, I would love to have gone to an old-fashioned fair in their heyday. They just seem so quirky and exciting. Case in point, The World's Fair.

I'm hoping someone else remembers this cartoon. It was one of my favorites.
