This year’s Denver Fair was chock full of great food, rides, exhibits, and unfortunately, persistent wet weather that has been hanging around for way too long. Opening night featured on and off rain, which added to the already soft ground, but many residents did not let the weather deter them from having fun. Shown from top left is: a youngster having the time of his life in one of the many water puddles (and his body language suggests he might be a little upset at having no sunshine); Denver Fair queens (left to right) Kathryn Voler - Miss Denver Fair, Rebecca Gideon - 2nd runner up and Rachel Gehr - 1st runner up and also named Miss Denver Fair Sweetheart; a beautiful painting from the art show and to the right is the pumpkin display; umbrellas in every shape and size being used; the ever popular monkey bread stand; a mom with three kids meeting the cows; and some excited children, one of which who just landed a ball in the top bowl.
