My Daily Happy #4

Small town events...

Whether it's a fair, a block party, or (in this week's case) a regatta, small town events pack a lot of punch without giving your wallet a black eye.

This weekend PID and I traveled with our friends to their hometown of Marietta, Ohio to enjoy the Marietta Riverfront Roar.  This event cost us absolutely nothing to attend save the few dollars we spend on deliciously greasy fair food.

I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to spend a weekend of simplicity with good friends and very little spending money... not to mention hilariously enticing food truck signs like these...

So next time you're looking to enjoy yourself, consider a trip to the "country" (wherever that may be for you) to check out a low cost weekend to enjoy a local fair (and the corndogs that are sure to be waiting for you).

What's your favorite fair food?
