I made it to several evenings of the Queen City Ex this year, including the Arkells, Burton Cummings, and Craig Morgan musical acts. All 3 were excellent, although Burton started early, and ended early due to lightning in the area. I also saw the drum corps, and the Joshua Seth hypnosis show, as well as a light show at the end of the fair. I ran into many friends, and people I knew, even the police officer who helped save my life 4 years ago.
One of the highlights was a chance to try professionally prepared cricket cheese sandwiches. Here’s the customer in line behind me, who said she’s had moose, elk, rabbit, and so cricket is no stretch of the imagination.
Some left the ride that dropped straight down, looking a little shaken. I watched a young boy, maybe 13 get off after first huddling in the chair for a few moments, and wipe his eyes dry before finally grinning to his family again.
