I hate to see summer coming to an end but I know what that also means and it makes me happy: it's Michigan State Fair time!
The fair, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, runs Thursday, August 29th through Monday, September 2nd.
Farm animals, competitions such as the Diaper Derby, Watermelon Seed Spitting, hot dog / corn-on-the-cob and pie eating contests, fireworks, carnival rides and games and more! Enjoy the beer garden, dog performances, live bands, an art fair, a giant cow made out of butter! There's livestock you can meet and even pig races.
Plus, you can make some new memories with your kids when you bring them to the Shrine Circus located on the Suburban Collection Showplace grounds! I'm excited to be the Honorary Ring Master for the 7:30pm show on Saturday, August 31st. I'm pretty sure that means I'm safe from being shot out of a cannon or swung above the crowd on a trapeze (fingers crossed)!
