Sunday At the Oregon Country Fair
What are the best aspects of the fair? Freedom of self expression. You can go topless--which makes it much easier to shop for clothes. High quality natural foods. Music at every turn. Art in all directions, all of it made by the person selling it. Compassionate causes presenting their stories. Adorable children giggling and having fun. Interesting architecture. Humorous presentations. Straw covering the pathways and sitting areas to protect the soil and keep dust off the people. Lots of recycling. And everywhere, people are friendly and open to conversation.
