If you are in to farm life and tractors, animals and expensive gifts then this is the place to go. Walked around a bit bored but determined to try and find something of interest. Failed miserably.

Love going around to all of the different stands and seeing what everyone has been up to. The variety of food and drinks is just amazing. The sense of culture here is immense. Definitely recommend going even if only for a day.
